Local partnership to bring hundreds of new jobs to SETX
A partnership is expected to bring about 200 new jobs to Southeast Texas.
Tropical Storm Harvey flooded the Chicago Bridge and Iron Building on Pine Street.
We've learned the Port of Beaumont will buy the property for about $8 million and will work with a private group to open a fabrication and paint shop as well as rebuild the docks and make other improvements.
The owners say the work will create about 200 jobs and possibly hundreds more in the future.
