Pier Lighting Project

Post Date:03/28/2017 2:27 PM

Nueces County Coastal Parks is about to start its pier relighting project for both Horace Caldwell and Bob Hall Piers.  Each one of the piers will be completely rewired and equipped with all new state of the art wiring, light poles and LED lighting.  Over the years the salt environment has taken its toll on our overhead lighting along the pier and these new marine grade LED lights and light poles will ensure years of low maintenance lighting of the piers for all who use them.  The total cost to do both piers is $200K which was made possible through funds made available by County Judge Loyd Neil and Precinct 4 County Commissioner Brent Chesney.  Both piers are iconic symbols of the Texas Coast and the Coastal Bend Region and reinvesting in them will ensure many years of family fun and fishing to both visitors and locals alike. 

Horace Caldwell Pier work will begin Monday, April 3, 2017 through Thursday April 6th.  During this time the pier will be closed to public use and fishing for safety reasons.  Horace Caldwell Pier will reopen for the weekend on Friday, April 7th with potential closure the next week April 10th through the 13th if contractor needs extra time.  After completion of the work at Horace Caldwell contractor will move to Bob Hall Pier and we anticipate closure of Bob Hall starting April 17th through 20th and again April 24th through 27th if extra time is needed.  We will keep the public informed on progress, but the main goal is to have both piers completely refurbished and ready to go for the summer season. 

We understand this may be inconvenient for many folks who use or visit our piers and we ask for your patience and understanding.  For any information related to Horace Caldwell Pier please call the Nueces County Coastal Parks office in Port Aransas at 361-749-6117 and for info on Bob Hall Pier please call the Nueces County Coastal Parks office at Padre Balli Park at 361-949-8121.
