More closures are coming to SPID for TxDOT’s ramp reversal project


Drivers will encounter several intermittent road closures on state Highway 358 in the coming week as the state’s Ramp Reversal Project continues.

The Texas Department of Transportation is calling for the closures, from June 6-11, so that contracted workers on the project can continue to make progress.

No mainlanes are scheduled to close during this time; this stage of the work focuses on the frontage roads in and around Highway 358, locally referred to as South Padre Island Drive or SPID.

Drivers attempting to enter the eastbound mainlanes from Weber can use these 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 wishing to enter the eastbound mainlanes may 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 Highway 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.
