Due to construction for the Harbor Bridge project, bus stops on Leopard Street will soon come to a temporary close.

That change has many residents concerned about how they can get around in the city.

In this same area sits the Corpus Christi Metro Ministries.  This program assists many people who are homeless and need extra help.

Metro Ministries administration shares its concerns for the safety of the folks who have to walk through construction to seek help.

“Riders that get here on RTA probably use the buses more than many people in town, because it is their only means of transportation for the majority,” says CEO Corpus Christi Metro Ministries Patty Clark.

Our KRIS 6 news team is making contact the Regional Transportation Authority to find out what ways pedestrians can travel safely in this area.

We will be live tonight on Leopard Street with the full story.
