The Port of Corpus Christi’s Ship Channel Improvement Project was included in the President’s budget for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Navigation Construction that was released Monday by the White House. The proposed budget includes $53,313,000 in funding for the Port of Corpus Christi’s CIP in the USACE Civil Works budget. Port Fourchon has been awarded grant money to assist with a project that will clear the way for four view finders to be installed at the port's Slip D Mitigation area next to the Fourchon Operations Center in the coming months.
