Harris County’s industry was given a boost when the ship channel for the Port of Houston was widened and deepened in 1911 for oceangoing vessels. As a result, petroleum refineries and other industries began locating along Buffalo Bayou and the San Jacinto River. Energy has boosted the Houston and Harris County economy since oil was first discovered in the region in 1901. The port helped fuel the region’s development as a center of international business and trade.
Harris County’s transportation infrastructure serves both intrastate and interstate needs for shippers transporting goods by truck, rail, and air.
