At Tuesday’s meeting Highland Village City Council members approved a resolution authorizing the city manager to extend the term of the city’s agreement with SAZ Infrastructure Group to conduct further concrete panel repairs in Highland Village.
In September 2017 the council first authorized the city manager to sign an agreement with SAZ Infrastructure through the city’s cooperative purchasing agreement with the city of Lewisville, the initial term of which ends on Aug. 6. The agreement with SAZ Infrastructure allows the city to request concrete panel repairs on a task order basis for panels that need to be repaired or replaced.
The city’s pavement management program allows city staff to request repairs to asphalt roadways that are showing sign of infrastructure failures on an annual basis. The city has completed approximately 46 concrete panel replacements while under contract with SAZ Infrastructure. This program is meant to maintain asphalt roadway infrastructure and increase their longevity.
Director of Public Works Scott Kriston said that pavement failures could limit the life expectancy of asphalt due to a lack of base, drainage failures and heavy vehicles traveling over the area.
Following tonight’s approval, the city will submit task orders for the repair of several concrete panels identified on Hillside Drive and Lakeside Drive.
