Cibolo City Council on Feb. 27 approved the preferred design for the Tolle Road project.

What residents should know

City Council agreed to a full depth reconstruction of the road, which would give the road an estimated 20 years of pavement service life at the cost of around $7.7 million, according to City Council documents.

The scope of the project includes the full reconstruction of the road and improvements to drainage in the area. The project includes 16 right-of-way acquisitions along the roadway.

This reconstruction option would take an estimated 31-33 months to complete from final design to construction, said Travis Michael, a senior associate with Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam Inc., on Jan. 23.

Cibolo city staff said the goal was to have the project begin by the end of this year.

Keep in mind

To help keep drivers safe while traveling on Tolle Road, council on Feb. 13 approved an ordinance to reduce the speed limit from 40 mph to 25 mph.

This speed limit reduction will be on approximately 1.19 miles of roadway from the intersection of Weil Lane to the intersection of Country Lane.

Violations of the ordinance will be deemed as a misdemeanor, resulting in a fine of no less than $1 and no more than $200, according to the ordinance.
