Holly Road Construction Begins Friday

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Beginning Friday, November 1, 2019, City contractors will begin a project to reconstruct Holly Road between Rodd Field Road and Ennis Joslin Road. This project will widen Holly Road to include a continuous left turn lane, sidewalks, and curb and gutter. There will also be improvements to the water and drainage infrastructure.  

Holly Road will be reduced to one lane, between Rodd Field Road and Ennis Joslin Road, throughout construction. Due to required drainage improvements in the initial phase of construction, contractors will be required to close North Oso Parkway at the Holly Road intersection.

The following traffic control plan will be implemented, weather permitting, beginning Friday, November 1, 2019:

·        Holly Road (Rodd Field Road to Ennis Joslin Road): The westbound lane will be closed. Traffic will be reduced to one lane, in the eastbound direction only.

·        North Oso Parkway and Holly Road Intersection: North Oso Parkway will be closed at the intersection. Southbound traffic on Paul Jones Avenue will be detoured at Holly Road. Motorists traveling on North Oso Parkway are advised to follow the detour route at Wooldridge Road. Local access will be maintained between Wooldridge Road and Osprey Street for residents and visitors to the Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve Learning Center.

The City reminds drivers to use caution and slow down when driving through the work zone. Motorists should expect delays during construction. For more information, please contact Traffic Engineering at 361-826-3547.
