Crosstown Expressway – Find of the Week

This week we are featuring a series of  six maps that show the right-of-way for a portion of  State Highway 286, known as the Crosstown Expressway, in Corpus Christi, Texas.  State Highway 286 has been designated on it’s current path from downtown Corpus Christi to Chapman Ranch since 1939. The six right-of -way maps shown below have a range of dates from October 1961 to May 1963. The final photo shows each of the six maps georeferenced to the ground locations of each map. Click on a map to expand it for a more detailed view. We found it very interesting to see the number of houses that impacted by the right-of-way.
