CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Potholes in the Casa Linda neighborhood are being repaired far ahead of schedule.

Corpus Christi City Manager Peter Zanoni contacted KRIS 6 News on Friday saying crews had been sent to patch the streets in the area between Ray High School and Baker Middle School on Friday.

They were working in the 3500 block of Cypress Street, a street over from Casa Linda and Baker MIddle School.

City of Corpus Christi Director of Street Operations Albert Quintanilla said in a Thursday story that fixing the streets wasn't likely this year due to budget shortfalls.

"At this point we don't have the funding to do those streets at all right now," he said.

Zanoni said the city's response to complaints about the potholes in a Thursday story was inadequate, and the situation was being addressed.

Residents such as 17-year-old Jack Meyer, who picks up his younger brother from Baker Middle School, was concerned about the toll the potholes is taking on his car.

"This is an older car, so I don't think it's very good for it," he said.

The city grades streets on a scale of one to 100. Casa Linda gets a 65.

Scores of 55 and below can lead to complete reconstruction.

Casa de Palmas scores a 46, Casa de Amigos gets a 41, and Casa de Oro is at 40.
