Destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008, Bayland Marina outside Houston in the Upper Galveston Bay celebrated its grand reopening April 5 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“People in Baytown, Texas, had waited three and a half long years for this day,” parks and recreation director Scott Johnson said. “Bayland is the only marina in the area, so when the marina was destroyed local boaters had to move their boats to locations outside Baytown.”

The new marina features floating concrete docks from Bellingham Marine that are designed to withstand an 18-foot storm surge. Twenty-inch freeboard, storm surge protection, upgraded power and full utility services at the slip are among the features of Bayland’s new facility.
