A Texas marina is facing a $350,000 price tag to move a section of its drystack boat storage away from land that is being used by the state highway department.

According to TheFacts.com, the building in Freeport, Texas, encroaches 22 feet onto land used as an easement for the state-maintained Pine Street bridge.

However, the Freeport Economic Development Corp. says the estimate to remove a 30-foot section of the building was about $100,000 less than expected.
