Local News

MCALLEN, Texas – The city of McAllen is celebrating the opening a roadway project which has been in the planning stages since 2013.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held this morning marking the official opening of the Auburn/Wisconsin Avenue expansion. The project connects North Main with North 10th street and will facilitate traffic mobility in north McAllen. The extension is a 5-lane curb including a left turn lane and sidewalks on both sides of the roadway.

Javier Villalobos, McAllen City Commissioner, “It’s amazing what it has done. It has alleviated the traffic on Morris and Perez Elementary. For a lot of the neighborhoods around here to not have to go all the way around but to connect straight through, where we were supposed to connect back about 10 or 12 years ago.”

The project was paid for by a 2013 roadway bond project at a total cost of $321,000.
