EDINBURG, Texas – Hidalgo County Commissioner Ellie Torres continues to expand Hidalgo County’s largest, main drainage system known as the North Main Drain. Torres was joined by elected officials and staff from cities, state, congress and community members, for a groundbreaking of what is known as the North Main Drain III- Phase I Project. The scope of work starts about ¼ mile east of McColl Road on Mile 17 ½ and ends 2,000 feet north of Monte Cristo Road. Drain will be widened to manage and reduce stormwater. 

The funding for this project comes from the County’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) program allocation which supports the county’s goal of reducing flooding by making generational investments in Hidalgo County stormwater management systems. The project is part of the SLFRF program, a part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), provides state and local governments across the nation with federal relief funds to support an equitable, efficient and effective economic recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Most recently, Hidalgo County Precinct 4 broke ground just south of this project with $3.7 million in funding secured by Congressman Vicente Gonzalez to begin the expansion and construction of just over 3miles of the North Main Drain leading up to this point.  “Today, we are picking up at Mile 17 ½ and utilizing ARPA funding at a total project cost of $1.8 million to continue the work at no additional cost to taxpayers,” said Torres.

The project was designed and engineered by TEDSI Infrastructure Group and it will be under construction by The 5125 Company.  Management and construction materials testing is under the oversight of B2Z Engineering. The project is expected to be completed in 180 days.
