On Tuesday, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new Murphy USA gas station in front of the Walmart in Port Isabel.
The project, which will include 16 pumps, is estimated to be completed in three months.
The construction of a gas station at this particular location has been long anticipated, however due to several technological difficulties and unleveled ground the project was delayed.
Murphy USA has partnered with Walmart stores across the nation since 1996.
Expressing enthusiasm for the partnership, Murphy’s USA store manager Luis Anguiar said, “Murphy USA is a friendly store willing to work with the community and provide for their needs.”
” We are here for their convenience,” he said.
