CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Expect some traffic snarls at a very busy intersection along the freeway this weekend.

That's because AEP is performing emergency work at the intersection of Staples Street and South Padre Island Drive.

The work requires lane closures between Williams Drive and the SPID frontage road.

Construction crews added that this work requires the closure of one thru lane and the right turn lane at the intersection.

In a news release, AEP states: "Safety is a top priority, so motorists are reminded to be aware of the work zone, follow the posted detour signs, or seek alternate routes to avoid delays."
