​​​MORGAN’S POINT - McCarthy Building Companies Inc. was recently awarded the contract for the $38.7 million upgrade of Wharf 2 at the Port of Houston Authority’s Barbours Cut Terminal located in Morgan’s Point.

Barbours Cut is considered to be one of the premier container handling facilities in the country.

The project will upgrade the existing Wharf 2 to support larger wharf cranes that can accommodate post-panamax vessels. 

McCarthy will upgrade 1,000 linear feet of wharf, installing new foundations and crane rails, and construct a new stevedore support building, high mast poles and the electrical infrastructure required for three new 100-foot gauge electric dock cranes.

Wharf 2 is adjacent to McCarthy's recently completed Wharf 1 project, which included the rehabilitation of a 1,333 linear foot structure used for the receipt and shipment of containerized freight intended for both foreign and domestic trade.

The upgrade of Wharf 2 is scheduled to begin in January 2016 and slated for completion by early 2017.
