Edinburg street getting $3 million facelift to improve traffic
Traffic congestion near UTRGV’s Edinburg campus could soon be a thing of the past thanks to $3 million in improvements for Schunior Street.
Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina said many drivers see the street as an expressway. It’s why the city and the university announced they’re investing $3 million to make sure this stretch of Schunior Street prioritizes people instead of cars.
A bond approved by local voters in 2018 and $350,000 from UTRGV will help pay for the project.
A median with landscaping will be installed in the street – along with a hike and bike trail.
More streetlights between Jackson Road and 5th Ave. will also be installed.
Crews will begin work on the project next week and will finish in around 8 months.
