GALVESTON, Texas -- Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works Michael Connor speaks at the Houston Ship Channel (HSC) Expansion--or Project 11--kick off event at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Galveston District headquarters, June 1. The Galveston District, Port Houston, and the Great Lakes Dock and Dredge Company are partnering to expand the channel. The HSC is a 52-mile-long channel with more than 200 public and private facilities alongside it. Expanding it is critical to safely and efficiently sustaining national energy security, domestic manufacturing growth, thriving U.S. exports, and expanding job opportunities.
