(Note: The Rockport Pilot is publishing this press release from the Texas Department of Transportation – TxDOT - because the future of the Harbor Bridge affects most, if not all Aransas County residents.)

TxDOT has recently had productive communications with Flatiron Dragados LLC (FDLLC) and their parent company, ACS Group. Those discussions have taken a new direction and tone since TxDOT issued a notice of default on Aug. 16. In a letter to TxDOT dated Aug. 28, 2022, FDLLC acknowledged full responsibility for a safe design and construction of a safe bridge and committed “...to do whatever needs to be done, including any changes to our teams’ culture as necessary, to assure that the FDLLC and the TxDOT teams are able to work collaboratively toward the successful conclusion of this project.” The letter went on to say, “FDLLC will, at its expense, provide designs and install the items of work that resolves the concerns raised by IBT in their reports. FDLLC is ready, willing and able to act upon IBT’s conclusions and do what is necessary to satisfy TxDOT that our revised designs in fact accomplish that result.”
