9/9/2011 Oswego, NY
The Port of Oswego Authority received official notification on Thursday, September 9, 2011 from the Department of Homeland Security, that it was awarded $160,400.00 for a security video surveillance system in the competitive Port Security Grant Program for 2011.
The Port of Oswego applied this
year for the installation of an IP
digital, network-based video surveillance system which will provide real time video feeds of the Oswego Harbor and River and the Port of Oswego. The system will be shared with local police and multi-law enforcement users to provide an enhanced security for the Port of Oswego and Oswego Harbor.
“This project was the combined efforts of the five U.S. Coast Guard regulated facilities in the City of Oswego with the cooperation of the Oswego Police Department, U.S. Coast Guard, and U. S. Border Patrol,” William Scriber, the Facility Security Officer commented. “The
system will be IP based and will allow monitoring by local, state, and federal law enforcement, along with Port Security,” Scriber added.
“This is important to the community as a whole,” said Jonathan Daniels, executive director of the port. “And it is important to the safety of upstate New York. We are the primary water link into the upstate region with our connectivity in our system. We need to be able to know the coming and goings in the harbor.”

Construction to Begin on East Terminal Connector Project
The Board of Directors approved the award of a contract for construction of Phase I - Easter Terminal Connector Project, to John R. Dudley Construction Co., of Oswego, at a meeting held on July 26. The award signifies commencement of the plan to expand storage and handling capacity at the Port of Oswego.
The project received funding from a federal appropriation made possible by then U.S. Congressman, and current Secretary of the Army John McHugh (R-NY23), and is seen as a critical piece in opening a 15-acre parcel of property to accommodate container shipments and additional project cargo movements. "Secretary McHugh provided the funding necessary for the Port of Oswego to initiate construction on a significant component of infrastructure to aid in the future growth of the Port." says Executive Director Jonathon Daniels.
With the construction contract awarded, work will begin on modification to the Port's entrance, thus allowing for more efficient flow of traffic. Widening of the primary roadway will remove barriers to aid in discharge of oversized cargo, and the installation of a new security guard building and lighting will enhance the ability of Port personnel to more rapidly process inbound traffic.
The next phase of construction will involve rehabilitation of the existing rail to heavy capacity standards, as well the integration of a new roadway to better access the storage yard. "Our goal in evaluating this project was to provide our customers with the most efficient and secure facility possible, while also removing trucks that access the site from city streets. We have accomplished both with the East Terminal Connector Project by developing a flexible cargo movement program in a way that ultimately enhances public safety." says Daniels.
