Ocean Drive Restoration Project Nearing Final Approval

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Ocean Drive, Corpus Christi’s most scenic route will soon undergo a much-needed restoration improving mobility and connectivity for the 14 mile stretch from IH 37 to Ennis Joslin Road. 

At today’s Council meeting, Mayor Joe McComb and City Council Members approved, on first reading, a construction contract with Haas-Anderson Construction, LTD., of Corpus Christi for the mill and overlay of Ocean Drive from Louisiana Avenue to Ennis Joslin Road. The $10.4 million contract includes the milling of all road surfaces, base repair as needed, and new asphalt pavement including all bike lanes, traffic signs, pavement markings, minor curb and gutter improvements. 

Additional work is planned at Ocean Drive and Shoreline Drive from IH 37 to Lomax Street. This area has been approved for repair and has been awarded to Bay Limited.  

City Council’s final approval for the Hass-Anderson contract is scheduled for September 2020. Both the Bay Limited and Haas-Anderson Construction projects will be performed concurrently beginning in October of 2020 and completed in the Summer of 2021. 

A groundbreaking ceremony for the project is scheduled for a date in October with construction starting shortly thereafter.
