The Victoria Barge Canal is a 35 mile long waterway that connects the Turning Basin in Victoria to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). The distribution advantage of the canal is its link with the GIWW and the major shipping lines that service ports on the Texas coast. The GIWW not only links the Gulf Coast from Brownsville, Texas, to Apalachee Bay, Florida, but also the Mississippi River, Ohio River and their connecting canals and river basins. This links Victoria to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Chicago and the Great Lakes, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Knoxville, Tennessee to mention only a few locations on the 26,000 mile Inland Waterway system. Barge Canal – 35 miles from Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Channel depth of 12′ +3′ and a channel width of 125′.
