Location of Second SPI Causeway Released
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND — We now know the location of a proposed second causeway for South Padre Island and the bridge would have four lanes and run from Holly Beach in Laguna Vista across the Laguna Madre onto South Padre Island between beach access five and six. The second causeway is important in case of emergencies and could be a secondary way of exiting the island.or easing traffic during Spring Break. The length of the bridge would be 7.3 miles long and at a cost of $450 million dollars. Project leaders hope to get environmental clearance for the causeway within a year.
