Special to the PRESS

CCRMAA critically needed second access route connecting South Padre Island to the mainland of Texas is one step closer to reality.

The Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority (CCRMA) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) received notification that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has approved the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed South Padre Island 2nd Access Project for further processing.

“This is great news for South Padre Island, Port Isabel, Laguna Vista, and the Rio Grande Valley. After the thorough process of state and federal review of the DEIS, we can finally move forward with the important next step in the environmental process by bringing the recommended preferred alternative to the public for review and comment,” said David Allex, Chairman of the CCRMA Board of Directors.
