Work to relocate city utilities along SH 5 is expected to begin in May following the approval of a nearly $16 million construction contract for the work at an April 16 meeting.

McKinney City Council members unanimously approved a roughly $15.8 million contract with ANA Site Construction LLC for the work as part of the consent agenda at the meeting.

The background

The Texas Department of Transportation has plans to reconstruct SH 5 in McKinney as well as in parts of neighboring cities, including Melissa and Anna.

The project will include additional lanes in some segments of the roadway as well as additional turn lanes, raised center medians, widened sidewalks and improvements to stormwater systems, according to the city’s website. The construction of the bridge for the Lower 5 Plaza is also being incorporated into TxDOT’s planned work on the roadway.

Ahead of the reconstruction work, city officials are working to relocate utility lines, including water mains and wastewater mains that would be impacted by the reconstruction effort. The utility relocations are expected to be completed prior to the beginning of work by TxDOT, according to the city’s website. Work on the first phase of the reconstruction project is expected to begin in mid-2026, according to city documents.

The details

City staff received six bids for the project, with ANA Site Construction LLC submitting the lowest bid. The $15.8 million contract also included a maximum price of about $19.8 million, pending any change orders.

The work includes relocating over 23,000 feet of water distribution mains and about 10,700 feet of wastewater collection lines, according to city documents.

Acquisition of temporary and permanent construction easements began in August 2022. The utility relocation work is expected to be complete by May 2026, according to city documents.

An additional contract with Terracon Consultants Inc. totaling about $321,000 was also approved at the meeting. The company is expected to contribute geotechnical and material testing services for the utility relocation project, according to the approved resolution.
