CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Construction is scheduled to begin this week on two North Padre Island Beach access roads.

Work will begin on Newport Pass Road and Zahn Road stemming from the 2014 bond.

Improvements to the beach access roads will include:

  • Newport Pass Road- Restoration and full dept repairs for the entire length from State Highway 361 to the beach.
  • Zahn Road- Full reconstruction of the last approximate 800 linear feet of roadway nearest to the beach.

Construction on Newport Pass Road will begin first and should take about 12 weeks. Zahn Road will follow and should continue for about nine weeks.

Safety remains a top priority, so motorists and pedestrians are reminded to be aware of the work zone, follow all traffic control devices, and use alternate routes to avoid delays.
