Major Repairs to Battleship Texas to Start Next Month

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

On the 99th anniversary of the commissioning of the Battleship TEXAS, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department announced a major initiative for the former warship.

Major repairs will be undertaken for the hull of Battleship TEXAS. The $17.5 million repair contract for the Battleship TEXASwill accomplish about half of the structural repair needs of the battleship and is a first step in meeting the long-term goal of placing the USS TEXAS in a dry berth, according to Scott Stover, TPWD’s Infrastructure Division deputy director.

The battleship will still be open for tours while the repairs are conducted.

According to the TPWD, funding for the repairs comes from General Obligation Bonds approved by voters and specifically appropriated by the Texas Legislature for Battleship TEXAS repairs.
