Bridging Corpus Christi
A new bridge for a growing community
Corpus Christi's skyline is in the early stages of a metamorphosis. That’s because the iconic Harbor Bridge, a roadway that is a distinct feature of the sparking city by the sea’s landscape, is undergoing a major upgrade. Once complete, the new Harbor Bridge will be the tallest point in South Texas and the longest cable-stayed bridge in the United States.
The new bridge design incorporates a number of aesthetic features including a shared-use path, a community plaza, nighttime LED lighting, and xeriscape landscaping. In all, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project includes design and construction of just over six miles of bridge and connecting roadway.
