Staples, McArdle reopens after completed repairs

The McArdle side had been reduced to one lane since Jan. 8.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The intersection of Staples and McArdle was fully reopened Tuesday after ongoing lane closures due to a water line bust. 

The water line was repaired last week and the contractor completed the roadway repairs over the weekend, city officials said in a news release. Roadway striping, manhole adjustments, and valve adjustments were completed on Monday.

"The break was caused by damage to the protective coating during a waterline installation in 1986," the news release said. "The deterioration of the coating ultimately caused the pipe to fail."
