In late September, the Greater Houston Partnership, in collaboration with the Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD), coordinated a trip to Washington D.C., to educate on the importance of the Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Project. The Coastal Spine — a barrier flood gate and levee system located along the upper Texas Coastline, was recommended by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to shield Port Houston, the Houston Ship Channel, and surrounding petrochemical producers from catastrophic weather events.
The Coastal Spine is designed to protect the critical infastructure along our coastline that supports supply chains across the globe.
