Domes in La Feria nearly complete

LA FERIA — Crews are hammering out what’s left to be done to complete the safe room domes in town.

The construction is projected to be finished be-fore hurricane season begins in June.

City Manager Sunny Philip says contractors are working diligently to complete the town’s two safe domes.

“We expect to be done within 30 days, by the end of April,” Philip said. “The domes will be complete and ready for use by June.”

The domes are far superior to traditionally constructed buildings.

Because of their design and use of superior building materials, they are virtually unaffected by time, weather, seismic activity or manmade assault, thus meeting stan-dards for near-absolute survivability.

The city held the groundbreaking ceremony for the domes on Aug. 15, 2014.
