Dear Brandywine Hundred neighbors:
Construction will begin at the site of the old DuPont Edgemoor Plant, for a new second port, within the next two years. Large box containers will be transported by rail and truck into and out of the DuPont Edgemoor Plant site. There will be significant truck transport, with primary method of transport by rail. Port operations (large cranes, lights, etc.) will be conducted around the clock, seven days a week. Neighbors of the Edgemoor Port was formed to partner with the port authorities to determine ways to enhance our community, and help mitigate any negative community impacts. We need your input now!!
