CORPUS CHRISTI – The main lanes of IH 37, both northbound and southbound, will be closed between North Port Avenue and Nueces Bay Boulevard on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 as part of the Harbor Bridge Project. The full freeway closure will take place beginning at 9 p.m. and ending at 6 a.m. and are necessary for the placement of beams related to the reconstruction of the Stillman Pedestrian Bridge. All work is weather permitting. Frontage roads will remain open and detours will be in place. See attached map for recommended alternate routes for motorists during the IH 37 full freeway, daily closure.
The Stillman Pedestrian Bridge is currently under construction and 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.
