The City of Corpus Christi says the Residential Street Rebuild Program is underway.

The work will be done in two parts.

The first focus will be fixing streets in poor condition but still have a good base under the pavement.

The second is completely rebuilding streets.  That also includes fixing curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.

People who took part in the test project say they’re happy the work was done but say there were challenges.

“Where else could you have parked? (sighs) really there’s no place to park because there was no road to park here,” said Michael Wendel, Ralston Avenue Resident, “I know that some people tried the solution to pull into their yards and park but unfortunately I have a minivan so that usually doesn’t come with the 4-wheel drive.”

“I’m very pleased they have finished the construction on our street,” said Lydia Montalvo, a resident on Rogerson Drive.

This program is part of an $11 million bond project approved by Corpus Christi residents in November of 2016.

The City will be sending out two-week notices before construction happens in other areas as well as following up with an additional two-day notice.  The timeline for this project to be completed is still in the works but they did tell us that work in central Corpus Christi will begin after the Labor Day Holiday.
