The project was included in the fiscal year 2016-17 utility improvement project, according to the meeting announcement on the city's website.

“In addition to a new sewer line that will better serve your needs, Lone Star Drive and Marquis Lane to Cedar Park Drive will be rebuilt and will be a smoother, improved road for you to drive,” the announcement read.
