Peñitas, Texas – Peñitas Mayor Rigo Lopez and the Peñitas City Council, in collaboration with Hidalgo County Precinct 3 Commissioner Joe Flores and the Hidalgo County Urban County Program, held a press conference earlier today to update the public on improvements to Tom Gill Road.

Mayor Lopez and Commissioner Flores announced that the City of Penitas and Hidalgo County Precinct 3 have entered into an interlocal agreement to complete construction on Tom Gill Road from Expressway 83 northward. Currently, the city has nearly $500,000 in funds allocated from Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the purchase of material that will be used to reconstruct the road from Expressway 83 to 5 Mile Line, approximately 5 miles.

“The City of Peñitas is proud to partner with Hidalgo County Precinct 3 and the Urban County Program to make these much-needed street improvements to Tom Gill Road,” said Mayor Lopez. “This is a major roadway for our community, the county, and our students, and by leveraging partnerships and financial assets such as this one, we are able to complete this project faster, cover a larger portion of the improvement area, and ultimately, create safer roadways for all our citizens,” he continued.
