HOUSTON - Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new facility at Ellington Field, Tuesday.
Sector Houston-Galveston is currently located at a seven-acre site on the Houston Ship Channel in Galena Park. A planning proposal completed in August 2008 recommended the relocation of the unit to Ellington Field.
