Cameron County Precinct 4 along with Commissioner Gus Ruiz have several drainage and road renovations under way in La Feria and local communities. The roads Calle de Limite and Mary Rose Street in La Feria are having some much-needed road renovations being worked on.

Mariposa Ranch Subdivision Entrance

Commissioner Ruiz states that the project will improve road conditions, drainage and public safety in Cameron County Precinct 4. Another huge project that is soon to be worked on is the Mariposa Ranch drainage improvement project. For years the Mariposa Ranch subdivision has been flooding and residents have been frustrated. At the beginning of June, Cameron County Pct. 4 Commissioner Gus Ruiz held an informational session about the project for its residents. The project will begin at Mallory St. and end at Palis Rd.

Calle de Limite Road being worked on.

The construction start date was supposed to begin in June, but hopefully as weather permits, construction will begin in July. The construction of the project is going to cost a total of $2.1 Million and will be partially funded through FEMA grants. They are hoping the project will be completed sometime in December of 2021. The area in and around Mariposa Ranch subdivision has been identified as a major flood prone area.

So, the project will widen, clean, and reshape the existing drainage ditch and upgrade existing structures. Other projects Pct. 4 has worked on are the Montalvo Drive Reconstruction Project and Kilbourn Road Reconstruction Project, which have been completed. Also, the reconstruction of Godwin Road Project is in the process of being completed soon.

If you have any questions on any of these projects, contact Pct. 4 Cameron County Commissioner Guz Ruiz office at (956)427-8069.
