City to break ground on secondary Concord Hills exit
The Los Presidentes Arterial Road extension will be built from Cuatro Vientos Road and Loop 20 to Concord Hills Boulevard and Brownwood Street.
LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - The city broke ground on Wednesday on a new road that will bring better mobility to residents living in the Concord Hills subdivision.
The south Laredo area is growing.
Business and residential developments continue to grow and this comes with traffic congestion and the need for more connectivity around the city.
Concord Hills, an area with only one way of going in and out, will now have a secondary exit.
“Basically, the start of this project is going to be at Cuatro Vientos intersection and its going to carry all the way east towards passing freedom elementary,” said Vidal Rodriguez. “This is going to connect Concord Hills, Las Missions, Agua Del Valle subdivision.”
Council member for District 2, Vidal Rodriguez says this project has been needed for at least 14 years.
It’s meant to help traffic flow in the Highway 359 area, where he says congestion happens often.
The exit will connect to the future city sports complex and to different subdivisions.
“It will benefit the Larga Vista, Las Ventanas, Nueva Vistas subdivisions.”
He says its not only to benefit south Laredo residents but also to make it easier for anyone visiting family or working in the area, and he believes it will turn into an economic project overtime.
“You’re going to see the commercial industry come in and realize more economic developments.”
Rodriguez says this is the start of the construction phase.
He expects the project to be complete within months.
