Callicoatte Road Closure at Up-River Road Intersection for Road Reconstruction and Utility Work

Work Will Require a Three-Week Closure

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Beginning on Wednesday, February 23, City contractors will begin work on the $1.9 million Callicoatte Road project from IH-37 to Up-River Road.

The work will require a three (3) week closure at the intersection of Callicoatte Road and Up-River Road to begin utility work.

The Callicoatte Road project will include road construction and utility improvements. Once complete, residents will enjoy new street lighting, signage, concrete driveways, and pavement. Utility work will include water, storm water, wastewater, and gas line improvements.

It is recommended that residents who live east of the intersection use the Violet Road exit and residents who live west of the intersection use the Sharpsburg Road exit.

Safety is the City’s top priority. Motorists are reminded to be aware of the work zone, follow posted signage, or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.  To learn more about the project please visit:
