This work will deepen the Sabine-Neches Waterway from 40 feet to 48 feet and add additional anchorages, which will provide many economic benefits and opportunities to the industries, businesses, communities, and individuals in the large geographic area served by the Waterway.

The dredging project is approximately 8.4 miles long and will include 5 million cubic yards including maintenance and new work material that will be dredged and disposed into Placement Area 8.

The Sabine-Neches Waterway Channel Improvement Project was authorized by the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 and initial funding for the Project was appropriated by the H.R.5895 – Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019.

The Sabine-Neches Waterway is a federally constructed navigation project, which serves both public and private industry at the Ports of Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Sabine Pass in Jefferson and Orange Counties, Texas and Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

The Waterway is vital to sustaining and growing the economies of Southeast Texas, Southwest Louisiana, and the United States.
