Final Environmental Impact Statement

 Pursuant to Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, §2.108, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is advising the public of the availability of the Final EIS for the proposed construction of the US Highway 181 (US 181) Harbor Bridge Project improvements in Nueces County, Texas.  The project limits include:  US 181 at Beach Avenue on the north; Crosstown Expressway at Morgan Avenue on the south; I-37 and Up River Road on the west; and I-37 and Shoreline Boulevard on the east.

The project would replace the existing Harbor Bridge and reconstruct portions of US 181, I-37 and the Crosstown Expressway.  The Final EIS identifies one of the build alternatives (the “Red Alternative”) as the recommended alternative.  The recommended alternative would consist of a controlled-access facility and would include six lanes within a right-of-way width that varies between 200-430 feet, three 12-foot lanes in each direction with a median barrier and 12-foot inside and 10-foot outside shoulders.  The alternative includes a 10-foot bicycle and pedestrian shared-use path on the main span of the bridge and on the bridge approaches.

Requests for hard copies of the Final EIS and further information about the project may be obtained from the Texas Department of Transportation, Christopher Amy, 1701 S. Padre Island Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas 78416 or call (361)739-6960.  Paper copies may be obtained at the requestor’s expense. The public review period for the Final EIS closed on January 20, 2015.
