Colleyville secures funding for Cheek-Sparger Road reconstruction

0

Construction on Cheek-Sparger Road in Colleyville is set to begin in spring 2020 after the City Council approved a funding agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation.

The council originally approved the project in September 2018. At that time, the city planned to use funds from a Local Project Advance Funding agreement, according to meeting documents. However, in May the city was informed that the funding for this agreement was no longer available.

“We were short on that timeline,” Colleyville Public Works Director Ray Silva-Reyes told the council.

Since then, staff has been working with TxDOT to secure a new funding source for the project. TxDOT has agreed to fund 80% of the project, and the city will fund the other 20%, Silva-Reyes said.

The project will reconstruct Cheek-Sparger Road from San Bar Lane to Oakbriar Lane and will add shoulders, curbs, gutters and storm drainage, according to meeting documents. Council said the project will help make the road safer.

The city estimates the project will cost $901,391, according to meeting documents. The city’s portion of the funding will come from the Tax Increment Financing fund.
