Port Houston has officially completed construction of its $91.6 million Bayport Container Terminal Expansion project, and it will be ready for ships in October. Known as Wharf 6, the project is expected to relieve congestion by adding capacity for imports and U.S. exports.
The Houston Business Journal reports the project kicked off in May of 2021 and includes a 1,000-foot-long wharf, as well as new marine bollards, tie-downs, storage pin sockets, fender system and cable trench, and a new fiber optic cabling for network connectivity.
Meanwhile, the marine cargo activity in the terminals helped generate $439 billion of economic value for Texas. The study also found the Houston Ship Channel and its terminals are responsible for supporting 1.5 million of those jobs in state.
