CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi will host a ceremony to rededicate the Yorktown Mud Bridge in the 8600 block of Yorktown Boulevard on Friday, April 21, beginning at 9:00 a.m.

On December 12, 2022, the City initiated an emergency closure of the Yorktown Mud Bridge to repair a sinkhole that resulted from damage to the bridge's riprap embankment. In addition, the project included restoring twenty-six of the fifty-five pilings that support the bridge.

The news conference will be available for viewing on the following city social media channels:

The rededication ceremony will be held on the west side (Rodd Field Road) of the Yorktown Mud Bridge.
