The city of Colleyville will spend nearly a quarter-million dollars for drainage improvements in the Pecan Park Estates subdivision.

FM Utilities LLC from Midlothian was awarded a contract not to exceed $613,589.91, with a contingency amount not to exceed $106,300, during the April 16 meeting.

A material testing amount not to exceed $16,525 was also approved as part of the contract.

This is Phase 1 of the water project and part of the fiscal year 2023-24 capital improvement program, according to city documents.

The CIP will cover $600,000 of the cost, while the drainage fund will pay for the remainder of the work.

“It is a very important project because of substantial roadway flooding in this area here,” City Manager Jerry Ducay said. “Rather than waiting for the remainder of the project, we wanted to expedite the stormwater management to meet that concern.”

The details

Nine companies submitted bids for the project, ranging between $676,577.10 and $2.4 million, according to city documents.

The work will focus on connecting the existing stormwater drain from Ponderosa Street to the stormwater drain on SH 26, according to Public Works Director Amber Beard. The ditch runs between Caliber Collison and the Colleyville Plaza shopping center.

The project consists of:
  • Installation of a storm drain system
  • Concrete flume removal and replacement
  • High-density polyethylene pipe
  • Curb inlets
  • Junction boxes
  • Drop inlets
  • Roadway repairs
