Port Itawamba: An Overview
Port Itawamba is in the City of Fulton on the canal section of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Fulton is the county seat of Itawamba County and home to the county’s government offices. Located between Memphis and Birmingham off Highway 78, the port is 20 miles east of Tupelo, northeast Mississippi’s industrial center.
The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway is a 234-mile long, inland, artificial waterway providing a navigation connection between the Tennessee River and the Gulf of Mexico via the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway and Mobile Bay. Port Itawamba is one of six publicly-owned ports on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
With rail access to public docks, a barge hauler, plus a 60-ton bridge crane structure that extends 120 feet from the bank and 90 feet over the water, Port Itawamba provides efficient loading and unloading of barges. Port Itawamba encompasses a barge fleeting area, 1,200 additional feet of mooring and handling space, and a 150-acre tri-modal industrial park.
Port Itawamba Industrial Park is north of the port on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, and adjacent to the Mississippian Railway connecting Fulton to Burlington Northern Santa Fe, a major Class I railroad. BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, Inc. is close to constructing its ethanol production facility in Fulton after meeting the conditions required to receive an additional $250 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy. The Fulton facility will produce 19 million gallons of ethanol per year from woody biomass, mill residue, and other cellulose waste.

Injured at Port Itawamba? Call Our Firm.
As an offshore worker, you’re at a higher risk of injury than workers in other industries. Equipment failures like a faulty winch or improperly maintained gas line, have caused serious accidents that leave workers temporarily or permanently disabled. An inexperienced deckhand could cause cargo to swing erratically, striking you and causing head trauma or a back injury. A fire or explosion may occur as the result of a well blowout while you are working on an offshore oil platform. The hazards are many, and the companies ultimately responsible for these incidents do nothing to ensure workers get what they need to recover. No matter the extent of the injury or the type of accident, you can count on our relentless advocacy as we seek the financial relief you deserve.
