The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $92 million construction contract to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company LLC to deepen and widen the Corpus Christi Ship Channel (CCSC) from the Gulf of Mexico to Harbor Island.
“The award of this first dredging contract is without a doubt the most important development we will see in 2019,” said Charles W. Zahn, chairman of the Port of Corpus Christi Commission. “Building critical infrastructure for the energy sector is our primary mission and will allow larger vessels access to much needed export facilities, safely and responsibly.”
The Army Corps of Engineers in November announced its fiscal year 2019 work plan, which included an additional $59 million in funding for the Port of Corpus Christ channel improvement project, bringing the total federal appropriations for the project to $95 million.
