TxDOT to Begin Phase One of Maintenance Project on JFK Causeway Bridge

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is scheduled to start a $9-million maintenance project on the JFK Causeway Bridge. This project is designed to maximize the structure's life and reduce its overall life-cycle costs.

The project includes:

  • Repairs to the substructure, superstructure, and railing on the main span of the bridge
  • Replacing the existing armor joints and bearing pads
  • Applying a new concrete overlay travel surface to the bridge deck

Lane closures are required to allow contractors to perform the work and will take place in three phases. During Phase 1, traffic will be shifted to the two outside lanes of the bridge. This traffic pattern will be in effect until May 31, 2022. However, all four lanes on the bridge will be temporarily open during the Beach to Bay Marathon on May 21, 2022.

All four lanes on the bridge will also be open throughout the 2022 hurricane season, beginning June 1, 2022, through November 30, 2022. At the end of the hurricane season, the traffic pattern will return to two-lane closures from December 2022 through the completion of the project in the spring of 2023.

The Corpus Christi Public Works Department and TxDOT will be monitoring city traffic cameras throughout the project's duration to help alleviate traffic concerns.
