NEAR BROWNSVILLE – The SpaceX project is making progress on Boca Chica Beach.

Some nearby residents tell CHANNEL 5 NEWS the project isn’t moving fast enough but SpaceX says it’s moving at a fast rate than scheduled.

KRGV’s Daisy Martinez reached out to the company about the progress being made.

SpaceX spokesman Sean Pitt released this statement:

"The ongoing construction of our launch pad in South Texas is proceeding well. SpaceX has now received the final major ground system tank needed to support initial test flights of the Big Falcon Spaceship."

More than 300,000 cubic yards of new, locally-sourced soil was hauled in to pack the dirt mound at the site. Company officials explain soil charging is a process that can take months or years.
