Port of Lake Charles approves ship channel study

Posted: Updated:

The Port of Lake Charles Board hired Ausenco Consulting on Monday night to study traffic along the Calcasieu Ship Channel ahead of the expected economic boom from new industrial projects.

The study will estimate expected increase in traffic of vessels through the channel, the timing of the increase and constraints limiting safety and efficiency within the channel.

The study will cost around $275,000 and will be funded by the port, along with channel users.
