Communication Tower in Cameron Co. Deconstructed, New Tower to Be Built

Posted: Updated:

NEAR BROWNSVILLE – The deconstruction of a 500-foot communication tower in Cameron County could mean faster response times for law enforcement.

Cameron County Fire Marshal Juan Martinez explains the tower was a safety issue before it hit the ground.

"You know there were a couple of guide wires that have come loose and then there were some bolts starting to loosen up,” says Martinez.

He tells KRGV’s Angelo Vargas a new tower will be built and the planning phases for that project are still in progress.

Martinez says the new tower will improve communications between agencies.
