Work resumes on new Harbor Bridge structure
Project developer ready to resume work on structure’s main spans Thursday
CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas Department of Transportation today announced that work will resume Thursday on the new Harbor Bridge’s main spans.
“The resumption of work on the main spans is positive news because it indicates construction progress is now underway on the project’s cable-stayed portion of the bridge. TxDOT and the developer are excited to begin this work because it represents a huge step forward for the project,” said TxDOT Corpus Christi District Engineer Valente Olivarez, Jr.
Crews for Flatiron/Dragados, LLC, the project developer, have remobilized and are prepared to begin erecting elements of the bridge’s superstructure Thursday. This will consist of lifting the first delta frames into place and continuing construction on the main span towers.
Olivarez said the resumption of work indicates Flatiron/Dragados’ commitment to achieving its publicly released work schedule that shows a project completion date of 2025.
