Nearly half of Port Arthur streets in poor condition; new proposal to fix them

Port Arthur's Public Works department found that nearly half of the streets are in poor or failing condition.

The department's director, Armando Gutierrez, is making presentations to the city council about how to fix them.

His proposal spans two decades, and could cost about $14 million a year for the next 20 years, which comes to $280 million total.

The cost, Gutierrez says, is worth it due to years of neglect, and the need refurbish and reconstruct.

KFDM and 6 News on Fox’s Jessica Crawford has the report.
