The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded the city of Kyle $1.8 million to repair part of Windy Hill Road.

The city applied for the funds after the road was affected by the 2015 floods and heavy rain events, according to a Nov. 1 release, qualifying in part because about 48% of nearby residents are low to moderate income and because the work is critical and urgent.


Kyle will have to contribute $1.6 million in city funds to the project.

The scope of the work, which will take place along a part of Windy Hill that stretches from 500 feet west of Cherrywood Drive to 500 feet east of Purple Martin Drive, is to widen the road, improve drainage, add turn lane capacity, install lighting for safety and create a better environment for pedestrians.

“When water on roadways closes or reroutes travelers, and when water rises to unsafe levels, that is a threat to public health, safety and welfare,” City Engineer Jo Ann Garcia said in the written release. “This funding will allow us to make needed improvements to that stretch of road and ultimately improve the quality of life for many of our city’s residents and those who utilize our roadways in their daily travels.”
