COLLEGE STATION, Tex, (KBTX) - A new H-E-B has opened in College Station and Mayor Karl Mooney says it's just another example of how the economy is continuing to grow.

"It's exciting, for the first time, our west side of town is actually going to have a supermarket. And it just saying what's happening here in College Station."

Also coming to the west part of town is a new elementary school. River Bend Elementary will open in the fall of 2019.

"Holleman Drive is widening, Rock Prairie is going to be improved, the train crossings are going to all be improved as well, we're working with Union Pacific on that," said Mooney. "And that just means more and more is coming to College Station in an area where we really hadn't been looking at a lot to happen."

Mooney went on to say he's also hearing from national companies that are interested in coming to College Station
