Lane closures affect SH 286 (Crosstown Expressway)

CORPUS CHRISTI—Various daily and nightly lane closures on State Highway 286 (Crosstown Expressway) main lanes will take place between Agnes Street and Leopard Street beginning Monday, June 18, 2018 through September 2018 as part of the Harbor Bridge Project.  Intermittent daily and nightly closures affecting the northbound and southbound main lanes of SH 286 will not last more than 24 hours.  Frontage roads will remain open.  All work is weather permitting.

 The lane closures are necessary to complete the reconstruction of the Comanche Street Bridge, which is expected to open to the public by late August 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.
