CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The area of Crosstown and Agnes Street has become a hangout for homeless in the area.

But for the nearby businesses, it's part of an ongoing problem.

Many people drive by this intersection frequently.

Homeless people, by the dozens, gather or sleep under the crosstown expressway every day.

But for nearby businesses like the Galvan Ballroom or Greenwood Door Company, many have become victim to the homeless leaving their trash or belongings.

This makes for an unpleasant site if you have to work in that area every day.

We hope to speak with several businesses near that intersection about what they've seen.

Hear their stories tonight on KRIS 6 news.
