Port Commissioners Sign Off on Plan to Replace Harbor Bridge

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Port Commissioners signed off on the proposed new Harbor Bridge, agreeing with TxDOT and other entities that the bridge, which was built back in 1959, needs to be replaced.

The Texas Department of Transportation will have the ultimate say-so, but the proposed route would extend the Crosstown Expressway directly over the ship channel, and then connect back to 181 on the other side.

The goal is to improve safety on the Harbor Bridge.
