STRATEGIC PLAN FOR ACTIVE MOBILITY


The Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is creating a new plan for a cohesive bike and pedestrian network that links key destinations in the Coastal Bend and provides a meaningful and safe transportation alternative. Phase I, Bicycle Mobility, of this Strategic Plan for Active Mobility is underway and will be complete by the end of the year; Phase II, Pedestrian Mobility, will follow in 2016.

HARBOR BRIDGE PROJECT


The Texas Transportation Commission selected a firm to design, construct and maintain the new Harbor Bridge. In the works for 14 years and much-needed due to the existing structure’s escalating maintenance costs, the new Harbor Bridge will have a flatter bridge grade, new lighting and other safety enhancements, as well as a new interchange joining US 181, I-37 and the Crosstown Expressway.

TRANSPORTATION NEEDS SURVEY


As part of the planning process, we provide transportation information on the condition of our system and then seek public input for improving the transportation network’s performance. The community’s feedback and diverse viewpoints enrich the evaluation and collaboration of our programs in an open and meaningful involvement of interested parties.

Learn why Roundabouts are the safest type of at-grade intersection.
