The Road and Bridge Department is the largest in the precinct and is responsible for road maintenance and construction tasks across the precinct. With over 621 miles of county roads to maintain, the most for any Hidalgo County Precinct, Precinct 1 staff works diligently to provide residents with passable, convenient and paved roads.
SAFE ROADS FOR SCHOOLS
One of Commissioner Fuentes priorities is to make roadways safe for transportation, especially for buses transporting our children to and from school. Safe roads are important to ensure that our local schoolchildren are able to attend school, since school attendance rates directly affect the funding formula for school districts. The Commissioner Fuentes is committed to maintaining safe roads in Precinct 1, and works with local school districts to identify and prioritize road improvement projects.
