TxDOT Restores Padre Street to Two-Way Traffic

City Council Passes Resolution in Support of TxDOT Decision

April 12, 2023

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) began work today to restore Padre Street, from North Tancahua Street to Ramirez Street, to two-lane, two-way travel.

In early March, TxDOT closed the three Harbor Bridge exits at Power Street, Padre Street, and Upper Broadway Street to deter wrong-way drivers from entering the Harbor Bridge. TxDOT reconfigured Padre Street into a one-way street heading westbound from North Tancahua Street to Ramirez Street.

After changes were implemented, S.E.A. District business owners requested that TxDOT restore Padre Street to two-way traffic flow while maintaining the closures of the exit ramps.

At the March 28 City Council meeting, council members passed a resolution supporting TxDOT’s proposed changes.
