Work on Ramp Reversal project in Corpus Christi halts for Memorial Day


Crews who are working construction on the highway that bisects Corpus Christi will get a break during the Memorial Day weekend.

That means drivers will, too. 

The Texas Department of Transportation said Friday it will pause all construction work that might affect traffic on its state Highway 358 (South Padre Island Drive) Ramp Reversal Project during the Memorial Day weekend.

The stoppage was to begin Friday afternoon and stretch until Tuesday. However, some contractors may continue to work behind concrete traffic barriers or during emergencies.

All construction work that might affect traffic on TxDOT's $49.9 million Ramp Reversal Project is set to pause during the Memorial Day weekend.

In the meantime, there will be a few recurring closures that will resume next Wednesday:

SH 358 Eastbound Weber Entrance Ramp

The eastbound Weber Road entrance ramp will remain closed until the new entrance ramp opens summer 2021.

Drivers who need to enter the eastbound mainlanes from Weber should use the following detours:

  • Northbound and southbound drivers on Weber may take the westbound frontage road to Kostoryz Road, use the turnaround, and enter the eastbound mainlanes using the Kostoryz entrance ramp.
  • Drivers on the eastbound frontage road who need to enter the eastbound mainlanes will be able to use the Weber turnaround, take the westbound frontage road to Kostoryz, and enter the eastbound mainlanes using the Kostoryz entrance ramp.
  • Left lane closed on the SH 358 eastbound frontage road between Weber and Everhart Road until the new eastbound Weber entrance ramp opens. Driveway access to all businesses and properties will remain open at all times.
