Edinburg  Commissioner Ellie Torres kicked off a groundbreaking and shovel ceremony today announcing the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Precinct 4 Mechanic Shop. The Hidalgo County Precinct 4 Mechanic Shop will be a brand new 11,684 square foot vehicle maintenance facility replacing the current building structure built in 1971.

It will feature three bay areas, a wash bay, offices, storage space, updated equipment, and other shop amenities.  The mechanic shop will be constructed between the current Precinct 4 Administration building and the Precinct 4 Field Operations building located at 1051 N. Doolittle Rd in Edinburg.  The new mechanic shop will provide much-needed space for the Precinct 4 mechanics team, allowing them to expand work capabilities offering a more conducive working environment while improving safety and providing a vibrant new workplace for the precinct operations. 

The new building is targeted to be completed in late 2021 and is to be built at a cost of $2.1M to include professional services. The mechanic shop is under the project management of B2Z Engineering, architectural design of ERO Architects, construction of NM Contracting, LLC, and civil engineering was provided by Hidalgo County Drainage District No 1.  It is worthy to mention that there was a significant cost savings to this project utilizing the knowledge and expertise of the Hidalgo County Drainage District No. 1 civil engineering design team.

“I am extremely excited to break ground on this much needed and long overdue project.  In order to manage the daily operations of the precinct, a mechanic shop conducive for a safe and effective working environment is necessary in order to keep up with the daily demands of our equipment and fleet management needs. This project could not have been possible without the team collaboration and partnership of so many involved, stated Ellie Torres.
