Full Public Notice    Project Plans

The purpose of the proposed project is to modernize and improve port operations associated with the Barbours Cut Channel in an expedient manner by improving the channel.  Such improvements would allow upgrade of the Barbours Cut Container Terminal and berths to accommodate the larger container vessels present and vessels that the shipping industry is moving towards, as well as to comply with the new, wider safety setbacks requested by the Houston Pilots Association.  Additionally, the purpose of the project is to modernize the channel in a manner that allows the Barbours Cut Container Terminal to realize the benefits of the -45 ft MLT deepening and widening of the Houston and Galveston Navigation Channels and the existing permit to deepen the existing berths.
