Texas City Ship Channel Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
TEXAS CITY, Texas (Oct. 29, 2011) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, together with the City of Texas City, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the 400-feet-wide channel (which was deepened from 40 to 45 feet in a dredging project that began in 2009). Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison was the honored guest speaker. The $75 million project originally slated to take five years to complete, was finished in less than two years. The project was completed using ARRA funds.
