Vision. Planning. Progress.

Port NOLA’s role is to plan, build and maintain the infrastructure necessary to grow jobs and economic opportunity related to trade and commerce.

The Port collaborates with state and local partners to ensure that we can continue to be a vital link to the world for businesses and consumers — throughout Louisiana and beyond.


The Port NOLA Inner Harbor Economic Revitalization Plan (PIER Plan) is a collaborative planning project with the City of New Orleans focused on future development of the Port's Inner Harbor and surrounding communities, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
