New Bridge for Corpus Christi, Texas

Day 131 of My Italian Learning Journal*

The Harbor Bridge of Corpus Christi, Texas -- my hometown -- was opened in 1959. It has served our port quite well for 60 years. The Port of Corpus Christi ranks sixth in the United States for overall tonnage, ninth in foreign trade and eight in domestic trade. The current Harbor Bridge will be replaced by a new iconic structure by 2020. Below I have placed a video of a digital rendition of the new Harbor Bridge and below that a few practice sentences in Italian. (Grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Il porto di Corpus Christi è la sesta grande negli Stati Uniti.
    The port of Corpus Christi is the 6th larges in the United States.
  • L'attuale Harbour Bridge fu aperto 60 anni fa.
    The current Harbor Bridge opened 60 years ago.
  • La costruzione è iniziata su un ponte di sostituzione.
    Construction has begun on a replacement bridge.
  • Una resa del computer del nuovo ponte può essere visualizzata cliccando qui.
    A computer rendition of the new bridge can be viewed by clicking here.
