Traffic Alert: Laguna Shores closure between Glenoak Drive and Caribbean Drive
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Starting on Tuesday, May 25, there will be a road closure between Glenoak Drive and Caribbean Drive near the Van Galen Channel. This closure is needed to complete underground drilling for a new waterline installation located under the channel.
Residents who live on Laguna Shores, between the channel and Glenoak Drive, are asked to take a right off Glenoak Drive to access their residences. Those who need access to Laguna Shores, between the channel and Caribbean Drive, are asked to take a left off of Caribbean Drive to access homes and businesses. Motorists will not be able to travel over the Van Galen Channel during construction.
The closure is anticipated to take 1-2 weeks, with additional closures possible due to weather delays. Once both the Beasly Channel and Van Galen Channel waterline installations are complete, the roadway over both will be reopened at the same time. City staff believes that additional closures will be needed in these areas over the coming months as construction moves forward.
Safety is a top priority, so motorists are reminded to be aware of the work zone, follow the posted detour signs, or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.
