BROWNSVILLE, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — The roads leading to SpaceX are getting a facelift.
Two weeks ago, Boca Chica Beach was announced as the official site for the country's first commericial rocket space launch.
This week, both sides of state Highway 4 were laid out with gravel.
They're the only roads to the future launch site.
On average, 18 trucks will travel to and from the project site every work day in the two-year long construction period.
