New Milestone for Port Corpus Christi

The Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge Groundbreaking Ceremony took place at the Solomon P. Ortiz International Center on the afternoon of Monday, August 8, 2016.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District officials also attended the groundbreaking ceremony.

The new bridge will provide additional navigational clearance beneath the bridge; this accompanied with the Corps’ proposed deepening project will make the port competitive with other Gulf Coast deep draft ports that accommodate larger ships.

Port Corpus Christi Commission Chair, Charlie Zahn, said: “The groundbreaking of the new Harbor Bridge marks the beginning of a new milestone for the Port and the Coastal Bend region.”

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.
