Detours planned on Highway 35 in Rockport
The next step in the city of Rockport's grant-funded $1 million drainage improvement project in the South Rockport area is the addition of culverts under state Highway 35 Business.
The work will require a section of the highway to be closed temporarily beginning Monday and continuing through Friday.
During the closure, vehicle traffic will be detoured to South Fuqua Street at West Corpus Christi Street and West Third Street.
Before the detour, northbound and southbound traffic on state Highway 35 will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
Electronic message boards and other signs have been installed to mark the detour route.
Loop 70/South Church Street can also be utilized as an alternate route for northbound traffic.
Motorists are encouraged to contact the city public works department at 361-790-1160 for additional information.
