“A lot of the time, for infrastructure improvements, the county will partner with us to offset the cost,” he said. “And I looked at some of the surrounding cities, and they’re getting a little bit more.”
Most recently, the county contributed $100,000 toward the $6 million Johnson Road project. The city is in the process of finalizing plans to add a roundabout to the Johnson Road and Keller-Smithfield Road intersection, among other upgrades.
“Infrastructure improvements are also a big deal because there’s a lot of growth happening around Keller,” Mizani said. “We have to make improvements to our streets and sidewalks."
The city expects work to begin on the nine-month-long Johnson Road project by April, Mizani added. He also expects improvements to Whitley Road and other problematic areas in the near future.
