Construction to begin on Houston Ship Channel Expansion later this year

The Houston Ship Channel, the busiest waterway in the country, is about to be overhauled. Roughly two-thirds of the more than 50 mi long channel is to be widened, along with other improvements intended to assist navigation to and from the Port of Houston, which recently announced that it had become the top U.S. port in terms of total waterborne tonnage.

Authorized by Congress in December, the Houston Ship Channel Expansion received another boost in January when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provided its first round of construction funding for the project.
