Transportation Industry Round-Table Discussion and Media Tour

Along with the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), Port Corpus Christi hosted a round-table discussion for freight industry 'influencers' and media at the Solomon P. Ortiz International Center in Corpus Christi.  The discussion was followed by a tour of Port Corpus Christi and some of the new industry taking shape around the port. 

Titled, 'Freight: Keep it Moving,' port forums brought together key thought-leaders throughout the transportation industry to explore critical issues facing U.S. seaports and discuss the increasing strain on the nation’s freight transportation infrastructure. Round-table participants included business, port and association executives, supply chain logistics professionals, academics and government officials, sharing their thoughts on the challenges, priorities and possible solutions for making investments in America’s freight transportation network.

In a recent AAPA survey, Texas ports and their private-sector partners said they are planning nearly $48 billion in capital investments (much of this surrounding Port Corpus Christi) over the next five years to handle the expected cargo volume growth and address freight mobility.

World Class Harbor Bridge Construction Project Ready to Go

Along with State and Federal Officials, Port Corpus Christi is excited to announce the beginning of a truly momentous project. With a symbolic turning of the dirt the official U.S. 181 Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge Replacement Project is set to begin. The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the Solomon P. Ortiz International Center on the afternoon of Monday, August 8, 2016, in the shadow of the current Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge.

The U.S. 181 Harbor Bridge Replacement Project will result in the longest precast concrete cable-stayed span in the United States, the third largest of its kind in the world. The height of the new Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge will allow some of the world’s largest ocean-going vessels entrance to the Inner Harbor at Port Corpus Christi. With a draft of 205 feet, the current Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge could fit underneath the structure of the proposed new Harbor Bridge.

The six-lane structure with shoulders is scheduled to be completed in 2021 for about $930 million. Funding is being provided locally by Nueces and San Patricio Counties, and Port Corpus Christi as well as state and federal sources and includes a 25-year maintenance agreement with the developer.
