CORPUS CHRISTI - Improvements to County Road 52 in Calallen have much to do with business being conducted in Ingleside, said members of the Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority.

The group charged with planning the redevelopment of 155 surplus acres at Naval Station Ingleside agrees that the economy of the area affected by the base's closure will benefit from the Calallen-area project because many employees of Kiewit Offshore Services live in Calallen. The base, which is near Kiewit, is scheduled to close by Sept. 30, 2010.

The city of Ingleside and the Coastal Bend stand to lose 4,135 direct and indirect jobs as a result of the closure. The road improvements were among seven items approved as part of the authority's federal stimulus projects.
