CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The multi-million dollar London road project is out for bid.

Officials say the project will improve flow of traffic there.

Nueces County Precinct 4 Commissioner Brent Chesney said he has been working on the London Road project for a year and was able to get funds from the capital improvement project to finance it.

Chesney said the county wants to work ahead on some of the infrastructure needs due to expected development in the area.

“Hopefully, we get two or three bids that we can choose the lowest bidder," Chesney said.

Farm Road 43 is an extension of Weber Road. And Farm Road 2444 is the Staples extension that is already jammed with existing congestion and school traffic. Chesney said the purpose of the road project is to move the flow of traffic from the county roads.

“But now we are going to have two we are going to extend this one," Chesney said. "County Road 47 and County Road 49 will go all the way from 2444 to 43."

Chesney said the work will not stop there. Future plans are to do significant work on County Road 22, connecting it to Texas State Highway 286, also known as the crosstown extension.

“You will be able to get off 286 and either come down Weber or come down County Road 22,” said Chesney.

The London Road project is out for bid and there is no anticipated start date yet.
