Your TXDOT Dollars At Work!
South Padre Island Drive has suffered from poor design and planning from the beginning. TXDOT(Texas Department of Transportation) has recently embarked on an ambitious program to move, reverse and alter many off and on ramps to correct errors inherent since the earliest days of the freeway.
Their success has been mediocre at best and has caused many chain reaction, multi car crashes. Who knows how long this will go on?
