City Marina To Receive New Peoples Street Boardwalk

Council Approves Design Contract

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – At today’s regularly scheduled business meeting, City Council awarded a professional services contract to Jacobs Engineering of Corpus Christi, Texas, for design, bid, and construction phase services for the new Peoples Street Boardwalk. Funding for the $439,000 contract comes from FY 2022 funding from the Seawall Capital Fund.

The existing Peoples Street Boardwalk was constructed in 1989. The decking of the existing boardwalk had been previously removed due to safety concerns. This project will replace the boardwalk with composite decking similar to that provided at Cole Park Pier. The scope will include additional boat slips for commercial use with upgraded electrical and water utilities.

The project is anticipated to take eight months, with construction slated to begin in Summer 2023.
