Lane closures affect IH 37

Closures to affect main lanes and frontage roads of IH 37 between North Port Avenue and Nueces Bay

CORPUS CHRISTI—Various daily and nightly lane closures on IH 37 main lanes and frontage roads will take place between North Port Avenue and Nueces Bay Boulevard beginning Friday, August 10, 2018 through October 2018 as part of the Harbor Bridge Project. Intermittent daily and nightly closures affecting the northbound and southbound main lanes of IH 37 and associated frontage roads will not last more than 24 hours. Frontage road closures and main lane closures will not take place concurrently. Frontage roads will remain open during main lane closures. All work is weather permitting.

The lane closures are necessary to complete the reconstruction of the Stillman Pedestrian Bridge, which is expected to open to the public by late September 2018.

Motorists are urged to be aware of the lane closures, to consider using alternate routes, to follow all traffic control devices, and to slow down in the work zones.

About the Harbor Bridge Project:  The nearly $900 million US 181 Harbor Bridge project will include the development, design and construction of just over six miles of combined bridge and roadway.  It will include the new six-lane Harbor Bridge, as well as, the reconstruction of approximately 1.6 miles of IH-37 and approximately one mile of the Crosstown Expressway.  Once the new bridge is open to the traveling public, the project will conclude with the demolition of the existing Harbor Bridge.  It is anticipated that the project will take five years to complete.
