More than 2,000 feet of screening wall and sidewalks will be replaced and rebuilt in the Willow Bend Estates neighborhood in Plano, according to city planning documents.

The project was approved during the April 11 council meeting. More than $327,000 will be spent on the project, planning documents show.

The project will take place along four different portions of the wall that is located along Legacy Drive. On the northside of Legacy Drive, 180 feet will be worked on just west of Fallkirk Drive with another 475 feet to see work from Fallkirk Drive to Ridgemoor Lane. South of Legacy Drive, 400 feet will be worked on west of Fallkirk Drive with an additional 1,290 feet to be constructed from Fallkirk Drive to Council Drive, according to the city’s engineering department.

City staff stated the project will reconstruct deteriorating neighborhood infrastructure, improve the quality of life for the neighborhood's residents and prevent increased future maintenance costs.

Funding for the work will come from the city’s community investment program, which monitors infrastructure needs across Plano, according to the city’s website. An exact construction timeline has not yet been announced. City officials did not announce any road closures associated with the project.


A map of the entire project can be seen below. More details on the project can be found here.
