Ships ready to dock at Cabrits following pier restoration

first_img 180 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Share BusinessLocalNews Ships ready to dock at Cabrits following pier restoration by: – June 14, 2018center_img Sharing is caring! Share (Press Release) 14th June 2018 — Local investment and hospitality company Range Developments is pleased to announce that restoration of the Pier in Cabrits National Park is completed. The project has been undertaken in partnership with M/V Pacific Hope, a ship that is dedicated to supporting the local community through provision of medical care and construction services via its dedicated volunteers. The Pier was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria and as a result, ships have been unable to dock there ever since. The work will partially restore the functionality of the Pier, enabling ships to access Cabrits National Park and Fort Shirley. Dr. Lenox Honeychurch, Curator of Fort Shirley said: “We are very fortunate that this assistance has come at this time as we are preparing to welcome international students for a summer program at Fort Shirley who will need the Pier to access their dive boat. We also need to prepare for the 2018-2019 yacht and tourist cruise season.”Following the completion of the restoration work – which has been undertaken in co-operation with the Port Authority – M/V Pacific Hope is able to dock at the Pier and provide much needed medical services for local patients. This isn’t the first time that Range Developments has collaborated with M/V Pacific Hope. The two organizations are currently working together on the reconstruction of CALLS – a local centre for youth – which was also damaged by Hurricane Maria. Further collaborations between both organizations are also planned for the future. Kamal Shehada, Development Director at Range Developments said: “The Pier in Cabrits National Park is an important community asset and restoring its functionality will enable its wider use for a wide range of beneficiaries. I would like to personally invite and encourage members of the community and associated organizations to join us in our ongoing efforts so that together we can benefit even more people.”Range Developments hopes to build upon their social responsibility efforts by supporting other worthwhile community projects and initiatives.

The highway, which connects Laguna Heights and Port Isabel, was closed off for several hours, forcing a long line of vehicles to reroute and drive into Brownville to re-enter either city, including many of those who were coming back from participating in the 31st Annual Causeway Run and Fitness Walk which ended on South Padre Island. Though a brief power outage followed the electrical fire affecting a little over 1,000 area residents, the road wasn’t reopened until after 5:00 p.m. as the pole was swaying back and forth in danger of collapsing shortly after the fire ignited around 10:00 a.m.“The fire we saw was compromising the integrity of the pole,” said Officer Ray Brandriff of the Port Isabel Police Department who was on scene. “It’s starting to sway now. It doesn’t happen that often and usually they’re able to extinguish it. I can’t tell you why it’s still burning it this weather,” he said referring to the rainy atmosphere surrounding the unyielding fire.The fire was put out by emergency crews before the pole was intentionally dismantled and is expected to be replaced next week. Electrical lines had to be cut and rerouted so the disintegrating pole would not tear down neighboring power lines once collapsing.“We made a temporary measure to restore power until a permanent metal structure arrives to replace it,” said Franz Espinoza with AEP Texas. “This is a normal business practice in these kinds of situations. The public is not in any danger while we wait for the replacement to arrive.”Many of the wooden utility poles along the chief highway have been replaced by metal ones over time to prevent similar occurrences. Poor weather conditions are cited as the reason for the incident.Want the whole story?
