Will the Corpus Christi Ship Channel have to close every time a VLCC comes through to Harbor Island?

No.  Partially laden VLCCs currently transit the existing 47’ channel without disrupting recreational use, and we do not expect this to change after the channel is deepened to -54’.  The Port works in coordination with Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to ensure that new developments do not negatively impact the existing operations.
