Highland Village City Council OKs bid for first phase of 2017 street bond program

0

At the May 14 Highland Village City Council meeting, members approved a $523,000 bid to Pavecon Public Works LP for the first phase of the 2017 street bond program.

The construction project is anticipated to begin in mid-June and includes seven streets. Those streets are Rosedale Street, Shasta Court, Ranier Court, Snowdon Court, Sheldon Court, Sugarloaf Court and Catesby Place.

Scott Kriston, Highland Village Public Works director, said this is expected to take 160 days.

In November 2017, Highland Village residents approved a $7.15 million bond package that included two propositions—$2.86 million for street improvements and $4.29 million for parks and recreation improvements.

The street improvements earmarked for bond money include the reconstruction of 23 residential streets that were identified as failing or at the end of their life cycle. The streets will be reconstructed in four phases.

In July, it is anticipated that construction on Phase 2, which includes Oak Forest and Winding Creek, will begin.

Weather permitting, the goal is to have reconstruction of the 23 identified streets completed by summer 2020.
