Cassidy & Associates News

Some good news from the Texas Gulf Coast… Cassidy & Associates client The Port of Corpus Christi Authority along with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved a project partnership agreement that will deepen the ship channel from 45 feet deep and 400 feet wide to 54 feet deep and 520 feet wide.

The jointly-funded $326 million project will allow two-way traffic and supertankers with a draft of 50 feet or more to travel through the ship channel. Once complete, the project will allow supertankers capable of passing through the recently expanded Panama Canal to travel into and out of the port fully loaded.

Cassidy Senior Vice President Charles Brittingham, a former senior policy advisor to the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, noted, “Great teamwork by the Port and the Corps made this agreement possible and will go a long way in strengthening America’s position in the global marketplace.”
