In the city’s annual restriping project, three road sections and one intersection will be restored. This work includes crosswalks, lines, words and symbols.

Collaborative Way and the intersection of CR 175 and Journey Parkway are two of the four striping projects, according to the city. These road projects are near Akins Elementary, Stiles Middle, Danielson Middle and Glenn High schools. These projects total $31,440.20.

The city’s child safety fees, which are collected from school zone traffic violations and per state law for school safety-related expenditures like school zone flashing beacons and roadway striping, will pay for these projects, according to the city.

Other roads to be restriped are:

  • Osage Drive between Lakeline Boulevard and Bagdad Road

  • Sheila Drive between South West Drive and US 183

The city’s roadway striping fund will pay for the Osage Drive and Sheila Drive projects totaling $30,047.90. The 2020-21 roadway striping budget has $33,507.18 remaining, according to the city.

Leander City Council approved the use of child safety funds for the project July 1 in the consent agenda vote. The city retained D.I.J. Construction in 2020 as the project’s contractor with a multiyear road restriping contract, according to city documents.

The project should be completed within 60 days of acceptance, according to the work order.
