COOS BAY, Ore. — A proposal to build a coal export terminal in Coos Bay is now off the table.
The Port of Coos Bay ended negotiations with California-based Metro Ports, Monday.
The proposed terminal would have shipped up to 11 million tons of coal from the Midwest to Asia per year. The project would have required shipping the coal through Eugene and other Oregon cities.
The port will explore other development options, but it hasn’t said if they would involve coal.
