The Port of New Orleans is marking the addition of two new massive cranes to handle container cargo. Governor Bobby Jindal stopped by to underline the state commitment to business investment.

Officials with the city and port of New Orleans formally accepted a nearly $17 million-dollar Transportation Department grant to build a specialized rail yard at the Napoleon Avenue container terminal.

Port President Gary LaGrange says it's a critical project needed for future growth.
