There's bad news for those of you who use Ocean Drive.

The City of Corpus Christi says the Ocean Drive improvement project won't be complete until the end of March. The project which runs from Buford Street to Louisiana Avenue was started back in 2016. 

The city announced it would reopen the roadway at the end of February but they've had some delays. City officials said crews had to do some utility work with Spohn Shoreline Hospital. So, they had to work with the hospital to schedule their work. They also said recent rain hasn't allowed them to repave the roadway. Crews plan to repave the road Thursday.
     
Meanwhile, crews have installed new sidewalks and they will add a dedicated bike lane to that stretch of Ocean Drive.
