​​​MEXIA – The U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding a $1.2 million grant to the Mexia Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).

The grant will allow for roadway infrastructure improvements needed to boost capacity at the Mexia Industrial Park and open additional land to development​.

According to grantee estimates, the project will help to retain more than 100 jobs.

The project will resurface and upgrade the existing Industrial Blvd. and Stanton Rd. in Mexia Industrial Park to provide a roadway adequate for the semi-tractor trailer traffic. This project will also build a new road to provide access to approximately 600 acres of MEDC-owned property adjacent to the industrial park to allow expansion.​
