Work to replace outdated waterlines in League City will move forward.

With no discussion, League City City Council on April 26 unanimously approved a $1.62 million contract with T-Construction to replace about 1,500 feet of an 18-inch sewer with a 21-inch line and about 1,800 feet of a 12-inch sewer with a 15-inch line. At least part of the work will take place around Willow Branch Drive.

The city identified the project as part of its 2018 Wastewater Master Plan. In the city’s 2023-27 Capital Improvement Plan, construction of the new sanitary lines was budgeted at $1.21 million with a final engineer’s estimation of cost at $1.39 million, according to agenda documents.

T-Construction was not the lowest bidder for the project; Roman Emperors Roads bid the project at $1.46 million, but city staff recommended T-Construction due to the company’s greater experience and capital, the documents read.
