CORPUS CHRISTI - The city has named a number of streets that could be getting fixed in the next few years.
It's a preliminary list of projects that you will vote in next year's bond election.
The City Council will start debating the early selections on Tuesday, making changes to the list until it's finally ready to be voted on next November.
Some of the notable projects include a two to three mile repair on Gollihar from Kostoryz all the way to Staples, worth over $15 million.
Also, a road widening project on Rodd Field from Saratoga to Yorktown, worth over $9 million.
All together, 23 projects worth $84 million.
But not everyone is pleased with the early selections.
Local business owners on Gollihar, like Martin Cuniga, who runs a barbershop, are weary of all the road blockages. He's just recovered from construction recently finished on Kostoryz, just a couple blocks down from him.
Now, he's worried that construction right outside his door will cost him tons of business, and maybe even make him shutdown.
Plus, he says he's already paid for tons of little repairs in the past few years.
"They are charging a lot of taxes right here, and we pay for that. And then, whenever they block all the way right here, all the Gollihar, all the business goes down, honestly," he says.
If the bond is approved, construction on the projects would begin in 2015.
