The Harbor Bridge Project (or New Harbor Bridge) is an $802.9 million project to replace the existing through arch bridge that crosses the Corpus Christi Ship Channel which serves the Port of Corpus Christi with a modern cable-stayed bridge design. The route will connect with SH 286 (the Crosstown Expressway) at its southern terminus, and US 181 on the north. Groundbreaking on construction took place on August 8, 2016 and is on schedule to be completed by the spring of 2020.

On October 15, 2019, it was announced that the Harbor Bridge would not be completed until 2023.

On November 15, 2019, design activities on the new Harbor Bridge were suspended by The Texas Department of Transportation. In a statement, the Texas Department of Transportation says it asked Flatiron Dragados, the firm building the bridge, to suspend the design activities.

  • It was great seeing the lights at night. We stood down by the USS Lexington to view them. You also get a good day view on the Lexington.  more »
