RTA Making Progress on Staples Street Center Construction

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Monday was a pivotal point in the construction of the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority's future Staples Street Center as they began drilling concrete piers for the structure.

Depths of the piers will range from 70 feet for exterior walls, to 35 feet for interior support, and six feet for the utility pad. Each pier is 18 inches in diameter. The RTA is proud of the fact that recycled materials are being used in the construction project.

The budget for the project is $22.9 million, and the projected completion date is scheduled for July 2015.
