TxDOT Mancamps


In 2017, Hurricane Harvey delivered a devastating blow to the coastal region of Texas, severely disrupting the economy and displacing thousands of businesses and homeowners.

The State immediately began massive response and recovery efforts, and SLS was activated to construct strategically-located mancamps for government personnel and responders.

SLS immediately mobilized and set up five emergency TxDOT mancamps along the coast and in the affected areas, with all camps functional within five days of activation. The mancamps were located in Corpus Christi (100 beds), Port Aransas (100 beds), Yoakum (100 beds), Beaumont (100 beds) and Sugar Land (300 beds).

The camps were fully functional and included mobile housing units, dining facilities, showers, restrooms and laundry facilities. All power, communications, food, water, linens, towels and associated items were provided to keep responders working to restore communities across the Texas coast.
