Share |

Edinburg, Texas­­— The City of Edinburg, The Edinburg Economic Development Corporation, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony to announce the construction of a DPS Mega Driver License Center in north Edinburg.  The ceremony will take place on Friday, March 17 at 9 a.m. at the construction site.



The 25,000 square foot facility is being built at the corner of Davis Road and I69C. When complete it will provide a number of benefits to Edinburg and surrounding communities including Class C Driver and all Commercial Driver License skills tests in the Rio Grande Valley.



The $2.5 million facility will be one of only 25 CDL designated locations in the state. The closest locations are in Corpus Christi and Laredo. The Center will also house other divisions of the Texas Department of Public Safety.



The state appropriated funds for this project in the 2016 State Budget. Construction is expected to be complete by August of this year at which time the driver license center will become operational.



The physical address for the DPS Mega Center is 5160 N. I69C and is accessible by taking the Davis Road/Ramseyer Road exit.
