Packery Channel Dredging Project to Prepare for Spring Break

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It may be hard to believe, considering our current weather conditions, but we are only about two months away from the annual Spring Break invasion on our beaches; particularly the area near Packery Channel.

To get ready for that, and to keep that waterway open, the City of Corpus Christi has begun a maintenance dredging project.

A large pipe in front of the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort is transporting dredge material to the beach nearby. Ultimately, crews will use heavy equipment to distribute the material, which, when it dries, will become white sand, just in time for Spring Break.
