Kingsville Border Station


Walter P Moore provided civil, structural, and traffic engineering for the design and construction of the new U.S. Border Patrol Station in Kingsville. The new station allows the U.S. Border Patrol to man the current nearby roadway checkpoints on Hwy 77 North in Sarita, Texas. It includes a 35-dog permanent kennel, which is crucial to the Border Patrol’s drug trafficking operations in this region. During hurricanes, the station serves as an inland staging area and shelter for the coastal stations located in Corpus Christi and Brownsville. It also provides equipment storage for the coastal stations. The 88,000 SF facility obtained LEED Silver Certification.

It includes the following:

  • 50,000 SF main administrative detention building.
  • 28,000 SF vehicle maintenance facility.
  • ATV storage.
  • 8,400 SF warehouse.
  • 3,600 SF kennel for 35 dogs.
  • Covered and uncovered parking.
  • Fueling station and four-bay vehicle washing station.
