Since November, the city has been replacing and improving the road base and surface between Mission Oaks Boulevard and West William Cannon Drive. Other improvements include adding crosswalk striping at key intersections and widening shoulders to improve safety.
That project, funded by a bond voters approved in 2018, was done while maintenance work to smooth Southwest Parkway’s driving surface was underway west of William Cannon to Amarra Trail. That project was completed in December, according to the release.
Together, both projects improved 6 miles of roadway, which is now made up of a denser material that will last longer while supporting increased traffic, according to the release.
