Lane closures affect Nueces Bay Boulevard

Closures will affect Nueces Bay intersection at IH 37

CORPUS CHRISTI—The intersection at IH 37 and Nueces Bay Boulevard will be closed from Wednesday June 20, 2018 through Monday, July 2, 2018 as part of the Harbor Bridge Project.  The northbound and southbound lanes of Nueces Bay Boulevard will be reduced to one lane as motorists approach the IH 37/Nueces Bay Boulevard intersection.  The closures and lane reductions are necessary for the demolition of the Nueces Bay Bridge.

Frontage roads will remain open and detours will be in place. Please see attached detour map.  All work is weather permitting.

The Nueces Bay Boulevard Bridge will be reconstructed as part of the Harbor Bridge project.

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.
