Nine roads near Old Town Lewisville will be repaired after a new, revised contract was approved with Huitt-Zollars Inc. during Lewisville City Council's Dec. 18 meeting.

The background

The original contract for a professional service agreement with the Fort Worth-based business came in 2015 to reconstruct asphalt streets with concrete curb and gutter sections, replace water and sanitary sewer lines, upgrade storm sewer systems, and construct sidewalks.

In 2019, the project's scope changed due to cost escalations in other capital projects, according to documents.

More than three years after a meeting with residents about the existing agreement was canceled, a new agreement was approved. The new agreement calls for preliminary and final design, construction management services and bidding. The contract is for $729,660 with a 5% contingency attached for a final cost of $766,143. The funding will come from the capital project fund. The project calls for an estimated 18-month project design, followed by 18 months of construction. The project is expected to be completed in 2026.

Zooming in

The revised scope of the project removes the street design, replaces utility lines, makes drainage improvements and rebuilds existing sidewalks to meet Americans with Disabilities Act-noncompliance standards.

The nine streets are in the northwest Old Town area, located off I-35E. Four of them connect to Main Street, according to the presentation.
  • Degan Avenue, from Main Street to College Street
  • Richland Street, from I-35 to Cowan Avenue
  • Temple Drive, from Degan Avenue to Lynn Avenue
  • Lynn Avenue, from Main Street to College Street
  • Edna Avenue, from Main Street to College Street
  • Cowan Avenue, from Walters Street to College Street (sanitary sewer only)
  • Walters Street, from Cowan Avenue to Charles Street
  • Hatcher Street, from Main Street to College Street
  • Herod Street, from Church Street to College Street
What else?

There will be 9,750 linear feet of roadway repair. The roads will be repaired 2 feet wider and will include 18 corner ramps to meet ADA compliance. According to project details, the asphalt mill and overlay can last 20 years with lower traffic volume on a residential street. Other improvements include replacement of existing water and sanitary sewer mains. Existing culverts and roadside ditches will also be upgraded.
