Property on the Delaware River in Gloucester County is going to get a new lease on life. Officials announced that the site of a former chemical plant in Greenwich Township would be transformed into a port facility.
The sale price for the 1,800-acre site is undisclosed, according to The Inquirer. The DuPont Co. owned and shuttered the site for over 10 years. While it once produced chemicals, ammunition, and explosives, about 1,500 acres are considered unusable because they are wetlands.
The port's new purpose is still in the study and permitting review stage. It could be appropriate for importing and exporting cars, but it's too son to tell.
