Construction to resume on FEMA safe dome in Robstown

Posted: Updated:
ROBSTOWN -

FEMA is building safe domes along the coast of Texas to protect residents in the event of a disaster.  

Safe domes serve as shelters for emergency operations in case of a disaster, such as a hurricane. 

Back in 2013, work began on a FEMA dome in Robstown but discontinued after it fell behind schedule. 

Construction is set to resume soon on the $1.3 million dollar safe dome. 

In 2015, work on the safe dome came to a halt, because Robstown City Secretary Herman Rodriguez wasn't satisfied with the contractor's work. 

"After a year of construction, or almost a year of construction, they were 13% complete. Which is not a good performance for a construction company," said Rodriguez. 

The contractor at the time was kicked off of the project, and the city will put in bids for a new contractor later this month. 

The construction of the safe dome is expected to be completed in August of 2018. 

The FEMA safe dome was originally supposed to be completed in August of 2016.
