As part of Pflugerville's Heatherwilde Roadway Rehabilitation Project, the city will kick off improvements on Sweetwood Song Drive, Laurelleaf Drive and Gazania Drive on Nov. 30.

This portion of the Heatherwilde Roadway Rehabilitation Project is expected to run through early January. The next phase of the side roads improvements is planned work on Acanthus Street in January before work begins on Hughmont Drive in February.

The city began construction on its rehabilitation project Nov. 18. Lane closures on Heatherwilde Boulevard between Pfennig Lane and Pecan Street are currently ongoing and will continue through late February. Neighborhood residents will be notified via door hangers when their street will be restricted, city spokesperson Maggie Holman said in a Nov. 24 email.

The planned improvements come as part of the Pflugerville 2020 Pavement Maintenance Program, with funding provided by the fiscal year 2019-20 streets and drainage budget.

Pflugerville City Council approved a $1.3 million construction contract Sept. 22 with QA Construction Services Inc. for the rehabilitation work.
