City Holds Meeting On Ocean Drive Project

CORPUS CHRISTI -- City officials met with residents and business owners Thursday night to discuss plans to narrow part of Ocean Drive, a project that has some concerned for reasons ranging from safety to illegal parking.

The plans call for reducing Ocean Drive from six to four lanes between Louisiana Avenue and Buford Street.

Some residents expressed concerns of bicyclists, who will have to share fewer lanes with drivers. Others said they were concerned about illegal parking on medians which they said has been a problem in the area.

The city will start accepting bids for the project next spring after it finalizes the design.

The project, which will be financed using some of the $55 million approved in a 2012 bond election, will begin next summer.
