Town eyed as potential site of second causeway

By MARTHA McCLAIN

Laguna Vista officials this week will formally consider support of the Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority’s (CCRMA) recommendation for a second bridge to South Padre Island.

Posted as an addendum to the original Town Council agenda, slated Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. at City Hall, the second access project issue is expected to shed light on the Town’s position as it relates to preferences for location of the bridge entrance. Support for the bridge access to begin near Holly Beach Road in Laguna Vista and terminate on the northern end of South Padre Island is among those voiced in recent times. Councilmembers will consider action to adopt a resolution in support of the CCRMA’s recommended alternative as identified in the draft Environment Impact Study.

    It would be difficult to think of a better way to waste taxpayers hard earned cash. Skipping Port Isabel, with it’s tourism related businesses, to cross at Laguna Vista, with it almost no, any kind of related businesses, would seem to have at least 2 strikes against it, the out being, not having any relationship with common sense.
