LOS FRESNOS – A project to upgrade the two resaca crossings on Henderson Lane has moved to the west end of the roadway even though the east side crossing is still a ways off from being completed.

The contingent of earth moving equipment, like frontend loaders and excavators, is now on the west crossing while the crossing on the east side is open to traffic.

The $2.2 million project was awarded to Pederson Construction, a locally owned company.

City and company officials estimate a completion date of the project by year’s end, but that will depend on weather and other conditions.

During the last meeting of the Los Fresnos City Council, held Tuesday, June 16, Juan Munoz asked how the project was going. City Manager Mark Milum said he was informed by the contractor they were ahead of schedule.

Councilman Andrez Lopez asked when the earth moving equipment was going to be moved, as it has been tearing up the roadway.

Henderson Lane is a panoramic roadway and has one of the top bird areas, but the two crossings are too narrow for some vehicles to get through.

While Pederson Construction is in charge of the construction side of the project, Ambitech is the engineering company handling the other aspect.

The work began about two months ago on the east side of the road.
