The Port of Corpus Christi, Texas, has cancelled plans for a proposed container facility at the La Quinta Trade Gateway due to its proximity to a residential community.The facility would have involved a heavy use of trucks, high-profile cranes and on-dock rail operations. The noise and light from such operations "would likely have a negative impact" on nearby residential areas, port officials said in a press release. Port officials consequently removed the container terminal concept from the La Quinta Trade Gateway master plan.The development also would have included a multipurpose dock and industrial space for tenants such as voestalpine Texas and the Gulf Cotton Compress, according to the port.The 1,300-acre La Quinta Trade Gateway comprises the 47-foot-deep La Quinta Ship Channel with direct access to approximately 1,300 acres of port-owned property. The channel provides access for small dry bulk vessels to serve voestalepine's cargo dock that was completed in 2016.The channel also offers access to liquefied natural gas tankers.
