Default Texas City D i k e

I want to go fishing, my boat is out of commission and my favorite piers are still so much kindling. I was wondering if anyone knew the status of the Texas City D i k e. Has it been repaired enough to be reopened yet?

Im sitting here trying to figure out why or what the citydata bad word filters deleted on you. Now I got it. It's a bad word for lesbian. How dumb. Anyway yes the diiike is closed because of damage from IKE. The diike which is suppose to protect Texas City was badly damaged to the point of not performing its function. Plans are to repair it quick because silt is already building in the channels. But like all govt, they are dragging their feet. The local fishing club is keeping pressure on by attending city council meetings in force.

The sno cone place has been replaced as well as the bait shop. They are up and running.

The whole raised road that runs along the Texas City coast line is still in perfect shape and open. Last week I did not see any fishermen but the wind surfers were out by the hundreds.

Thank You. Didn't think it would be open yet. I'm trying to avoid Galveston and the coast this weekend as I believe the traffic will likely be intolerable. Maybe I'll nip over to Trinity Bay or the Trinity River and see what'll land on the hook over there.

They're also filtering the wrong word, and the proper spelling for the lesbian slur is unfiltered. Go figure.

Everything on the Dike got wasted by Ike. Lots of debris to be cleaned out of the water before they go building anything. It's probably going to take awhile.

The diike will not be repaired this year because the money is going to the levee by Moses Lake. They want the levee repaired by September which includes removing all the trees and poles that line the levee. All cables to the houses that front Moses Lake will have to be buried. Major project, so don't look for the diike to be repaired anytime soon. If the levee is breached in the next hurricane, it could flood the city. We live in Plymouth Landing (by the lake) and the levee came within two feet of being breached during Ike.
