TEXAS CITY, Texas — Aside the new road and improved boat ramps, the Texas City Dike is bare. Soon, though, a pavilion will open, and the entrance to the dike will feature a piece of Texas City maritime history.
Improvements at the dike aren’t the only enhancements under way in the city.
The city is converting an out-of-business car dealership into a city service center. It recently bought an out-of-business stone company’s facility as a site for parks department’s work crews.
Mayor Matt Doyle has been waiting to rebuild the First Lady Pavilion at the dike. Hurricane Ike destroyed the original pavilion, dedicated to the wives of the city’s mayors.
This pavilion will be across the road from the old one and is being built to a much stronger standard, Doyle said. Construction is expected to be done within the next month.
