But in the meantime, we're doing what we can to help out and we've partnered with Workforce Solutions of Alamo to promote current opportunities available in the greater San Antonio area through Vulcan Materials Company.

Hey There!

Since we announced that we are moving forward to build The Medina Line, the 9-mile single track common carrier railroad near Dunlay which will bring jobs and economic opportunity to the area, we've been real busy opening up our Hondo office and meeting with the community. 

In the last month, we've met with or spoken directly to all the landowners along the route to discuss the project and answer questions. We've had positive conversations with community leaders, local businesses and civic groups, and many families. We look forward to continuing those conversations with all of you as the project progresses, and remember that our door is always open. 

Here's a look at what we've been up to, and remember, you can always go to to learn more. Come visit us anytime at our office at 734 18th Street in Hondo!
