CORPUS CHRISTI - TxDOT officials say commuters should expect two more days of lane closures on the Harbor Bridge tomorrow afternoon.
A routine inspection of the bridge was scheduled to end today, but the backup from an early morning crash on Highway 181 and light rain made for unsafe conditions for inspectors.
On Thursday, one southbound lane (heading to Corpus Christi) will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the inspection. Then on Friday a TxDOT crew will close down the northbound (heading to Portland) lanes of the bridge for some street light work.
Plan ahead and leave early for your destination if you plan on heading across the Harbor Bridge. This is National Work Zone Awareness Week after all.
According to TxDOT, 85 percent of the people killed in construction zone crashes are motorists, not construction workers.
