Port Freeport, USACE Meeting: FHCIP on the Table

The officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, met with Port Freeport Chairman Ravi K. Singhania, Port Executive Director Phyllis Saathoff and Director of Engineering Jason Hull on 26th of January.

The group discussed policy and planning topics including federal budgeting, the schedule of the Freeport Harbor Channel Improvement Project (FHCIP) and Water Resources Reform and Development Act 2014 (WRRDA).

The main goal of the FHCIP is to contribute to the economic efficiency of commercial navigation in the region. With the key role that the port system plays in the Texas economy, funding for infrastructure and security projects is critical for Texas ports in order to maintain their competitive edge with other ports along the Gulf Coast and across the United States.

Their meeting concluded with a tour of the port given by Port Freeport Executive Staff.
