Corpus Christi moves forward with $700 million replacement bridge

The $700 million replacement project for Corpus Christi's Harbor Bridge is moving forward with four construction teams invited to submit proposals to the Texas Department of Transportation. Details remain undecided but the proposals are to be in by January for what's among the state's largest infrastructure contracts. Transportation agency spokesman Rickey Dailey tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times the department wants the contractor whose proposal is accepted to both design and build the bridge in hopes of avoiding delays and simplifying the project. Contractors are being given wide latitude in their designs. Among the firms participating is Traylor Brothers, an Indiana-based company that built the 2.6-mile Fred Hartman Bridge over the Houston Ship Channel east of Houston. The 1.8-mile Harbor Bridge being replaced opened in 1959.
