A full house was present for the much anticipated groundbreaking ceremony for Whalen Road Aug. 18 in Donna.
Representatives from the Cities of Alamo and Donna, along with neighboring constituents joined Pct. 1 Commissioner David L. Fuentes and his staff in celebrating the starting of the collaborative project that will soon pave a new way for the community.
“The collaboration and partnership established with the cities is something that’s very important to me,” said Fuentes. “It’s a great way for everyone to work together towards a common goal.”
Fuentes has committed to keeping costs down by utilizing Precinct 1 labor and equipment. Keeping the project in-house, Fuentes and his staff are helping save taxpayer money while at the same time improving the quality of life for residents in the area. The Cities of Alamo and Donna will each share the cost of the materials to be used for the street improvement.
"The half mile road will provide a necessary alternative of travel and commuting and will improve the quality of life of surrounding homeowners and businesses,” said Fuentes.
