Work is underway to improve traffic and sidewalk improvements on South Padre Island.

According to a release, the project started this month to improve traffic and pedestrian mobility along Padre Boulevard just over three miles moving toward the Convention Centre.

City officials said the project will impact a total of over two miles of lane closures in 11 phases. The first phase started on Dolphin Street, along Padre Boulevard, to Retama Street.

A release added that to minimize impacts to businesses during peak times, construction will be paused during the following times: March (entire month), April 3 – April 12, June (Friday’s – Sunday’s), July (entire month), August (Friday’s – Sunday’s), and any city recognized holiday.

Officials said the project is part of the Venue Tax Project approved by South Padre Island voters back in November of 2016 and funded through the Venue Tax Fund.
