ROCKPORT (Kiii News) -

The Big Blue Crab, as it's known in Rockport, is almost ready to go home.

Artist David Allgood was tasked with making a new blue crab to replace the iconic piece of art that was located in Rockport Beach, but had deteriorated over the years.

The Aransas County Historical Commission hired Allgood for the project, and for the past nine months, he has been working day and night on the 25 x 25-foot crab.

He finally completed the project Wednesday.

Allgood said he plans on putting the new crab back on the beach once hurricane season is over.
