Construction Underway on Port of Port Arthur Expansion

A ground-breaking ceremony recently took place on a $37-million expansion at the Port of Port Arthur. The goal of the construction is to put into place 600 feet of additional dock space that will help the port keep up with increasing traffic and cargo. The increases are a result of both the Panama Canal widening, and proposed dredging of the Sabine Neches Waterway.

The expansion project will help the port accommodate increased cargo from both ships and rail when completed in the next 16-18 months. In addition, the port is part of a grant program with the U.S. Department of Transportation, that will provide it with $20 million of an additional $55 million project, which will add another 300 feet of multiuse dock space.

A construction timeline on the second project was not available.
