Houston Ship Channel Bridge
Harris County, TX
Harris County Toll Road Authority
January 2018 - 2024
In October 2017, Zachry Construction was awarded a $550 million, three-phase cable-stayed bridge contract by the Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA). A joint-venture partnership with Traylor Brothers, a firm that specializes in bridge structure, complements Zachry's civil approach.
The project timeline is more than six years; in the first three, the team will construct the new side of the bridge. Then, channels will switch over traffic so the existing bridge may be reconstructed, while additional segments are built the Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay.
This multi-phase cable-stayed bridge project is a major proponent of advancing the shipping industry in Harris County, Texas. The end result will widen and deepen the ship channel to assist transportation of mega-barge ships and Pan America mega vessels.
