EL CENTRO — Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia’s office has confirmed the target completion date for the California Highway Patrol’s new El Centro Area office is in 2023, though an exact date was not released.

The $40 million facility planned for South Fourth Street near Danenberg Drive would replace the current office on Highway 86 in Imperial. Even though the project was announced in summer 2018, construction has yet to begin.
