RECOMMENDATION

Discuss and consider a request by the Port Authority of Corpus Christi to close a section of Navigation Boulevard.

BACKGROUND
Nueces County maintains Navigation Boulevard from Up River Road north to the inner harbor where the Tule Lift Bridge was removed.
DISCUSSION
Because of security and safety concerns the Port Authority of Corpus Christi has requested the closure of a section of Navigation Boulevard from 1400 feet north of Up River Road north to the end of the road at the inner harbor.

The Commissioners Court has the authority to close county roads, in accordance with Chapter 251 of the Transportation Code.  Should the Commissioners Court agree to the proposed road closure, the Department of Public Works will work with the Port Authority of  Corpus Christi to secure the necessary petition and postings.  The Commissioners Court action on the final approval for the closure will occur at a later date.
