Several Highland Village residential roads are about to get a facelift, as the City Council approved Phase 1 of the city's 2023 Street Improvement Project.

The details: The roads set for upgrades are Lamesa Drive, Turpin Drive, Camden Drive, Glenmere Drive, Moran Drive, Raney Drive, Catlin Circle, Catlin Terrace and Lakeland Drive. Phase 2 of the project will begin at date to be named later, per Paul Stevens, Highland Village city manager.

The background: The Street Improvement Project is funded through the 2021 bond issue. For streets, traffic signalization and drainage projects, the city has allotted approximately $9 million. The projects in phases 1 and 2 account for $3.6 million of the $9 million, according to city officials.

Quote of note: “We are very excited about beginning this program. Several of these streets have had new water or sewer lines installed, and the streets are in need of resurfacing after all of that utility work. I know the residents will be very happy to see the project fully completed," Stevens said.
