City Holds Another Meeting On Shoreline Redesign

CORPUS CHRISTI -- The city's engineering department on Tuesday held another public meeting to discuss designs for the Shoreline Boulevard realignment project, something some residents said will only increase the risk for accidents.

The project, which was approved by voters as part of a $13 million bond in 2008, will narrow Shoreline Boulevard from Louisiana Avenue to Buford Street by reducing it to four lanes from six.

"Now, you've got two lanes southbound and one lane northbound and the potential is there for a head-on collision," said Bill Kopecky. "The potential backlash from this is tremendous from the public, and it won't happen until it opens and they find out how screwed up it is."

The project is expected to be completed by November 2014.
