Construction of New Hidalgo Co. Courthouse Expected to Start Fall 2018
EDINBURG – Plans to continue construction of a new courthouse is expected this fall.
Hidalgo County Judge Ramon Garcia told CHANNEL 5 NEWS the building will be located on the southeast corner of the tract of land where the current courthouse is.
Officials also plan to address flooding concerns. State funds totaling $20 million will be used to fix the drainage in the area.
Meanwhile, work to remove mold from areas in several courtrooms is also set to begin this weekend. Last month’s storms produced high humidity levels that led to common mold developing the building.
