UPDATE - City Ready for Spring Break 2022

Thousands Expected to Visit Area Attractions and Beaches March 5 to March 20

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi is preparing for thousands of visitors to area attractions and beaches during Spring Break 2022.

Lifeguards will use mobile units to patrol Gulf beaches. Visitors should observe and follow the flag warning system to be aware of surf and rip current conditions. The flags are located on all Gulf beach access roads.

A lane for emergency vehicles will be established on the Gulf beach from Zahn Road to Newport Pass.

The Corpus Christi Police Department (CCPD) will set up an Island command post and have patrol units on the beach for underage drinking and DWI enforcement.

CCPD will monitor traffic flow on Aquarius Street and other key intersections along Park Road 22, including Whitecap Boulevard, Commodores Drive, and State Highway. Motorists could see delays and are advised to leave early for their destination.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has reopened the I-37 northbound Labonte Park exit ramp, which eliminates the need for motorists to use a northbound detour to access the park.

The SH 358 (South Padre Island Drive) Ramp Reversal Project will pause lane closures for Spring Break in an effort to reduce traffic congestion during the holiday.

TxDOT has opened all travel lanes on the JFK Causeway Bridge allowing traffic in two lanes in each direction, separated by a traffic control barrier. The four-lane traffic pattern is scheduled to continue until the week of March 21. During the week of March 28, motorists should once again have one travel lane open eastbound and one travel lane open westbound.

The Port Aransas ferry operations will operate at full capacity and are prepared to respond to any surge in late-night traffic. For the latest information and wait times, visit https://twitter.com/PortA_Ferry.

City parks, swimming pools (Collier Pool and Natatorium) will be open with free admission.
