New Harbor Bridge Overview Presented to County Commissioners

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The plans have been close to a dozen years in the making, and on Tuesday, it was Nueces County Commissioners' turn to get an update on the proposed Harbor Bridge project.

"We will have a draft environmental impact statement out in November of this year," said Lonnie Gregorcyk, Texas Department of Transportation engineer. "We will have a public hearing in January of 2014."

TxDOT employees presented an overview of the proposed new Harbor Bridge, and also delivered an assessment of the current bridge, saying that it has become too difficult to continue repairing. They are considering four proposed routes for the new bridge, the most favored being referred to as the "red" or "purple" route.

A final plan for the new Harbor Bridge is expected to be ready early next year.
