Much has happened since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began assessing what it would take to deepen the Sabine-Neches Waterway, a 79 mile deep draft ship channel which extends from the 42-foot contour in the Gulf of Mexico through a jettied channel to the Port of Port Arthur, and to the Port of Beaumont via the Neches River Channel.
