Following motorists’ complaints regarding ride quality on many roads in Bee Cave, officials moved forward with a plan to repair streets in the subdivisions of Bee Cave West, Falconhead West and Falconhead.
City Council voted during the June 11 meeting to award Lone Star Paving the contract with a $1.835 million bid, beating out Alpha Paving and Texas Materials Group, companies that posted $2.794 million and $2.823 million bids respectively.
Lone Star’s $1.835 million bid includes a $1.1 million base bid for streets including Vail Divide, Harrier Marsh, Falconhead Blvd. and Spillman Ranch Loop. Another $164,534 is included for alternate bid No. 1, $404,890 for alternate bid No. 2 and $176,231 for alternate bid No. 3.
In May, Bee Cave Director of Planning and Development Lindsey Oskoui said the base bid covers 67% of the entire project, with the remaining 33% going toward the alternate bids that will cover additional streets within the three listed neighborhoods.
Information from the city states the total duration of the project will be approximately two months, and lane closures will be allowed from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. only. Most of the road work will consist of milling and overlaying, and should be complete by mid-August, according to city staff.
