DescriptionOn Sabine Lake, 11 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Port Arthur is connected with the Gulf by a ship channel 36 feet deep and 400 feet wide at the bottom. SR 87, between Port Arthur and Sabine Pass, skirts the canal much of the way. Just northeast of the city, the 1.5-mile-long Rainbow Bridge spans the Neches River 176 feet above the water.
