The Texas summer has heated up the Gulf Coast weather, and the LNG and refinery projects are heating up the Gulf Coast economy. With Motiva announcing a big expansion, Golden Pass LNG receiving its final permits, Sempra LNG making final plans to begin and Total committing to a new cracking unit, the construction jobs are continuing to become our future for the next five to seven years. Each of these projects is working on programs to include local contractors and employees. The total number of construction jobs for these projects will exceed 10,000.

A good transportation system is one of the most important tools needed for economic development. The movie “Field of Dreams” made famous the line, “Build it and they will come.” That might be true, but to come, they must have good roads on which to travel. To help the city get in line for highway funding, the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce presented the City Council with its list of potential road and street projects.
