Massachusetts
Port Authority was created in 1956 by the Massachusetts
Massachusetts
General Court to replace the locally controlled port commission;[13][14] however, the Authority was not enabled until 1959,[15] due to delay in bond funding.[16] The Authority is an independent public authority, not a state agency.[15] In 1966, Castle Island Container Terminal was constructed for Sea-Land Corporation, one of the first intermodal container facilities. In 1971, the Authority constructed a second container port in Charlestown for the use of other shipping companies. In 1980, Sea-Land ended its exclusive lease, and the first container port was enlarged and made available for other shipping companies.[17] On January 1, 2010, the Tobin Bridge
