The rehabilitation project is anticipated to begin Oct. 1. Lewisville City Council approved a $9.1 million bid award to Axis Contracting for the project at their Sept. 11 meeting.
The project’s scope includes concrete paving, drainage, water and sanitary sewer improvements for nine neighborhood streets, according to the agenda item. The streets within the subdivision are bounded by South Valley Parkway to the east, including Babbling Brook Drive on the north and Buffalo Bend Road on the west and south.
Construction crews will replace existing asphalt pavement roadways with new 24-foot-wide concrete streets and improve side ditches and driveway culverts. New water and sewer lines will also be installed, according to the agenda item.
The streets included in the project are:
- Babbling Brook Drive
- Little Fawn Court
- Babbling Brook Court
- Silver Cloud Circle
- Firewater Circle
- Buffalo Bend Drive
- Wanderlust Drive
- Spring Creek Lane
- Sweet Springs Court
The project area was developed in the late 1980s without curb and gutter, underground drainage or sidewalks. When initial surveying for the project design began, Lewisville’s engineering department received calls from residents concerned the city would add sidewalks in front of their homes, according to project details.
A meeting was held during the design process to gather input from residents. While some favored sidewalks, most attendees expressed the desire for no sidewalks.
There are no plans to install sidewalks, curb, gutter or additional storm drain in this area. The existing street right of way is not wide enough to include sidewalks, city officials said.
Another resident meeting will be held before construction begins. Residents will have the opportunity to meet the contractor and project inspector and provide additional input.
More information on the project can be found on the city’s website.
