Capital Improvement Projects

The Port Authority plans to undertake significant infrastructure improvements in the next few years to ensure that the Port of Houston can accommodate the advent of larger vessels and increased cargo resulting from the pending Panama Canal expansion in 2016, as well as the expected future demographic growth in the region.

Maintaining and improving efficiency at the public terminals through more modern facilities and equipment is essential to meeting one of our mandates – to promote and facilitate commerce to benefit not only our local partners, but also Texas and the nation.

In 2015, the Port Authority expects to commit $275 million for various capital projects.  Approximately $184 million will be allocated to our container terminals for continuing development of Bayport and modernization at Barbours Cut, and another $35 million is geared towards improvements at the general cargo and bulk terminals in the Turning Basin area.  The remaining 2015 capital budget funds will be used for railroad improvements, channel development, port security, building renovations and information technology.  While the Port Commission has approved the 2015 capital budget amount of $275 million, in accordance with statute, any individual capital project or expenditure exceeding $50,000 must be presented and acted on by the Port Commission at a public meeting.

This Project Advertising Schedule is a list of all the current Port Authority capital improvement projects that are about to begin the procurement process. 

This is an Upcoming Construction Projects Report.
