Ports & Marine Terminals — Freeport, TX

Port Freeport Velasco Terminal

McCarthy was the prime contractor on this project to construct a new 800-foot bulk dock facility for Port Freeport, including a new relieving platform wharf, a DMPA site, lighting, electrical service, cathodic protection, and a small building and restroom facility.

The project also included 700,000 yards of mechanical dredging to clear a 1500' x 400' approach to the new wharf. McCarthy constructed a dredge material placement area and two outfall structures to accommodate the dredge spoils.

McCarthy self-performed the concrete paving, placement and finishing, concrete piling and steel sheet piling.
