Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to repair and upgrade the existing ferry facility which would include work on bulkheads, breakwaters, mooring dolphins, and ferry slips.  Approximately 1,016 linear feet (LF) of steel sheet pile bulkhead would be placed approximately 1.5 feet in front of the existing bulkhead.  The bulkheads would include A-frame anchor walls that have concrete piles driven on land.  The existing breakwater on Mustang Island would be extended approximately 107 feet and would consist of steel sheet pile combined with steel pipe.  The existing breakwater on Harbor Island would be extended by constructing the bulkhead approximately 40 feet away from the existing bulkhead, resulting in the permanent loss of 0.3 acre of Section 10 waters.  At the base of the new bulkhead and breakwaters, approximately 1.46 acres of 15-inch and 18-inch stone riprap would be placed.  At the Mustang Island landing, approximately 2,500 cubic yards of material would be dredged at slips 11 and 6.  The dredge material will be placed in an upland location outside of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) right-of-way (ROW).  At the Harbor Island landing, the 27 existing mooring dolphins would be replaced with 24 monopile mooring dolphins.  At the Mustang Island landing, the 36 existing cluster pile dolphins would be replaced with 40 monopile mooring dolphins.  New monopile dolphins would be a combination of 36-, 40-, and 60-inch-diameter monopiles.
