Callan Marine kicks off Packery Channel restoration project

Callan Marine recently started work as the prime contractor to the City of Corpus Christi for the Packery Channel Restoration Project.

The Packery project consists of repairs to shoreline protection, sidewalks, bollards, storm drains, handrails, and other damaged structures.

The scope of restoration work includes the demolition and removal of damaged articulating block mat revetment, concrete walkway, and bollard/cable barriers.

It will also include the construction of riprap revetment (placement of riprap as toe protection along the landside section of two jetties; re-setting displaced riprap and armor stone blocks along two jetties), and construction of a new concrete walkway, five new storm drains, and concrete block lined drainage swale.

There will be improvements made to five existing storm drains and the replacement of a section of an aluminum handrail along one jetty.

Work commenced this month and is anticipated to be completed in June 2023.
