Callan Marine and the City of Beaumont celebrated the Riverfront Park groundbreaking on April 12, 2023. The park sustained significant damage from Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Now, more than five years later, officials stated that Riverfront Park is on the road to restoration. Callan Marine’s marine construction division will restore the park's pavilion, picnic tables, benches, boat dock, and walking path.

“We are so proud to serve the City of Beaumont and residents in restoring this treasured community asset,” remarked Greg Harner, COO of Callan Marine’s construction Division. “Callan Marine is committed to providing safe, quality work to bring this project back to life.”

City officials, Callan Marine staff, and residents gathered to celebrate the official project kickoff, turning the dirt and communicating the initiative to build back better in the City of Beaumont.

The contract was awarded in January 2023 and the project is anticipated to be completed in September 2024.
