Work ahead

The Rockport Harbor Pavement Improvements Project is underway, but when it will be completed is not known, according to Aransas County Navigation District (ACND) Harbor Master Keith Barrett. “Nothing is as easy as it once was due to materials,” he said. The roadway in front of Capt. Cady’s and Pelican bait stands was deteriorating at a rapid rate due to standing water in the area, and the usual heavy traffic around the harbor. Lester Contracting was awarded the bid for $111,210 after the initial contractor failed to perform, and its contract was terminated. In an attempt to solve the problem, drains are part of the project. They will move ponding water to the harbor. “We’ll see if they work (before looking at doing more such work in the area),” said Barrett.
