This Bond 2004 project includes constructing two bridges for the north and southbound lanes. Each of the proposed bridges will consist of two 12-foot lanes with 10-foot inside and outside shoulders and one-foot railings for an overall bridge width of 46 feet. The total length of the proposed bridges will be approximately 128 feet. The proposed canal would connect Lake Padre (east of PR 22) with the Padre Isles canal system (west of PR 22). The project also includes lighting, striping, railing and traffic control.
