Public Meeting for Ocean Drive Street Improvements

The City of Corpus Christi Capital Programs will host a public meeting to discuss and gather feedback in preparation of a street improvement project on Ocean Drive from Buford Street to Louisiana Avenue. The public meeting is an opportunity for stakeholders in and around the project to ask questions regarding the construction of this project. 

Interested citizens are invited to attend the open house at 5:30 p.m. Monday, February 29 at First Baptist Church Rec Center, 3115 Ocean Drive. Discussion will follow at 6:00 p.m. 

This Bond 2012 project includes full-depth street reconstruction with new curb and gutter, sidewalks, and underground utility improvements for water, wastewater and storm water. The work includes four new traffic signals, pavement markings, signage and full ADA compliance. The reconstruction is a “Road Diet” project that reduces the existing six-lane to a four-lane roadway with dedicated bike lanes, eight-foot sidewalks and protected left turn lanes.  

A brief description and projected construction schedule of the project will be presented. For more information, please contact Director of Capital Programs Jeff Edmonds at 826-3500.
