CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Ramp reversal on South Padre Island Drive will continue this week.

TxDOT officials say the work requires lane closures between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day this week. Work will include the eastbound mainlanes for barrier work along with closures on the eastbound Airline Road exit ramp and Weber Road and Everhart Road entrance ramps.

Drivers should expect delays and detours in area and should plan accordingly.

Work on the project was put in hold to allow workers to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with their families.

Details of the work include:

Eastbound Mainlane and Entrance Ramp Closures

  • Sunday (12/5) through Tuesday (12/7), 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. EACH NIGHT: All eastbound SH 358 main lanes will be closed between Everhart and Staples Street for barrier work.
    • Eastbound SH 358 drivers will exit at Everhart, continue on the eastbound frontage road, and re-enter after Staples.
    • The eastbound entrance ramps from Weber and Everhart will also be closed. Drivers may enter the eastbound SH 358 mainlanes after Staples.

Eastbound Airline Road Exit Ramp Closure

  • Wednesday (12/8) and Thursday (12/9), 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. EACH NIGHT: The eastbound Airline exit ramp will be closed while workers continue wall and ramp work. Drivers may use the Staples exit ramp as an alternative exit.

Westbound Airline Road Exit Ramp Closure

  • Friday (12/10), 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.: The westbound Airline exit ramp will be closed for concrete work at the high mast illumination structure. Drivers may use the Rodd Field Road/Nile exit ramp as an alternative exit.

Meanwhile, these recurring closures are planned:
