A major road in Flower Mound will soon receive repairs.

On May 20, Flower Mound Town Council approved a services contract for the replacement of concrete panels on Flower Mound Road by Rowlett-based F&F Concrete Construction LLC. The project is expected to begin June 18 and to be completed in September, Public Works Director Clay Riggs said.

The background

In August, Flower Mound Town Council approved a $2.2 million contract for concrete and drainage improvement services to Apex Concrete Construction, F&F Concrete and Quick Set Concrete. The contract set unit bid prices for these services, a town council agenda stated.

The details

Dedicated sales tax is the funding source for the improvements, Riggs said. He added that other panel replacement projects will be needed because of the deterioration of roadways.

Riggs told council 13,000 square yards of pavement on the road, or about 2 lane miles, will be removed and replaced.

Staff wanted to use this contract for the Flower Mound Road panel replacement project, which extends from Long Prairie Road to Cross Timbers Road, as identified on the capital improvement plan.
