Community Outreach

The Port of Houston Authority is committed to continuing an ongoing dialog with the many communities surrounding the Houston Ship Channel. We believe in contributing to the quality of life in our local area and continue to develop meaningful partnerships with our various external stakeholders.

TXDOT CONSTRUCTION UPDATE - PORT RD.
In order to better serve local residents, businesses and cruise passengers, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is currently working on road improvements at the intersection of Hwy 146 and Port Rd. This beneficial project involves constructing a direct-connect roadway from Port Rd. to the northbound lanes of Hwy 146. This new direct-connect will assist drivers in accessing Hwy 146 more efficiently and safely. In order to move forward with this progress, please be advised, there are several weekends of planned roadway closures on Port Rd.

During the weekends of Oct 11th, October 18th and October 25th, there will be a closure of the westbound lanes of Port Rd, at the intersection of Port Rd. and the Hwy 146 access road.

SPONSORSHIP REQUEST UPDATE:
The Community Relations Committee will not meet in November. Please submit all sponsorship requests for fall events and programming by October 16th.

Any requests received after October 16th will be placed on the agenda for the December meeting, currently scheduled for December 15th.

Chairman Janiece Longoria created the Chairman’s Citizens Advisory Council to provide an open line of communication between communities in and around the Port of Houston, and the Port Commission.

We strive to support our region through helping others increase their understanding of Port operations and its contribution to the local economy.  Individuals and groups can take a free tour of the Houston Ship Channel on the M/V Sam Houston.  Schools and other organizations can request a speaker.  Other teacher resources are also available online, with information and activities for all ages.

The Port Authority remains actively engaged in the community through volunteer efforts and financial or in-kind sponsorship support.  Our sponsorship priorities include: maritime commerce, economic and workforce development, environmental awareness, and community outreach.

We are committed to being a responsible neighbor and community member in the region, and maintaining that commitment is an important part of our work.
