CORPUS CHRISTI - The State of Texas has approved spending $24 million to widen FM 2444 (Staples Street) from the Oso Creek Bridge to Highway 286. Right now, it's a one lane road in each direction without sidewalks or proper drainage.
Bay Ltd. was awarded the contract to add an additional lane of traffic, center turn lane, shoulders, sidewalks, a traffic signal at Kitty Hawk, ditches to handle drainage and a longer bridge to deal with drainage at Oso Creek.
TxDOT says the work should start early next year and wrap up in late 2016.
