Pipeline And Utility Search Beneath Texas Waterway

May 2012, Vol. 239 No. 5

Chris Ransome & Associates, Inc. has been contracted to verify existing pipeline and utility crossings beneath the Sabine-Neches Waterway in the Beaumont- Port Arthur area of southeast Texas in preparation for the future Sabine-Neches Waterway Channel Improvement Project.

The improvement project is a federal venture that will deepen the ship channel from 40 feet to 48 feet. The latest channel improvements were completed nearly 50 years ago. The deepening project will aid in better waterway traffic management, local port accessibility for larger vessels and allowing the region to take advantage of the recent Panama Canal expansion.
