Dedicated to Port Lavaca, Texas - Then and Now...



Lavaca Bay Causeway - West End

 The Lavaca Bay causeway, linking Port Lavaca and Point Comfort, became known as the longest fishing pier in the world after it was replaced in 1961 by the current concrete causeway. The pier was lighted and a was popular overnight destination for fishermen from near and far.

Most of the pier was destroyed by two separate fires. Some of it still stands, but is not accessible from land. In 2006, a small lighted pier was constructed here.
