Chaparral St. Phase 2 has begun with the closure of the 500 block. Traffic heading North on Chaparral St. is diverted West on Schatzell to Lower Broadway and then with an East turn on Peoples Street returning to Chaparral St.
An electronic sign has been posted at the Agnes/Laredo entrance to Downtown warning of the street closure ahead. It is critical for businesses to note that the detour route is too tight for 18 wheeler traffic. If your business has scheduled deliveries with a route down Chaparral St., please contact your suppliers and adjust deliveries to re-route to Water Street. To be clear – 18 wheelers using Chaparral St. will become stuck and cause delays in the Downtown area.
While the road is closed, the sidewalks will remain open to allow pedestrian access to the businesses located on that block.
Downtown merchants should expect official Chaparral Street Phase 2 updates from the City of Corpus Christi via email on a periodic basis. If you are unsure if you are receiving email project updates, please contact Doreen Harrell, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please call City Inspector, Ed Dunbar with any project specific questions/concerns at 361-739-3935.
