A contract governing the engineering services for a grant project was approved during a joint meeting of Grapevine City Council and the Grapevine Planning and Zoning Commission on Sept. 19.

The contract will cover design work for a roadway project repairing 870 linear feet of asphalt pavement along Forest and Lipscomb streets near Lucas Drive.

The overview

By approving the ordinance, council made $214,500 available through the capital project street and utility enterprise funds, according to city documents. The overall project is funded through a community development block grant, the 49th annual iteration for the city.

Per city documents, the overall cost of the roadway project is over $1.3 million with the city providing more than $1.1 million and Tarrant County funding $175,000. If the project comes in over budget, the city will be responsible for additional costs.
