Phase 1 of the Live Oak Streets Improvement project is underway, starting with work on Judson Road, Toepperwein Road and O'Connor Road. This project is funded through a bond passed in 2022 in the amount of $18 million.

In May, City Council approved $7.42 million in funding for the first phase, which includes up to $1.8 million in change orders. Remaining funds will be used for additional phases.

The project

Work in the first phase includes curb repair at Judson Road and Toepperwein Road, which will be done during daylight hours, according to an Oct. 9 announcement from city officials.

The repaving of O’Connor Road and a portion Toepperwein Road will be done at night between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. According to the announcement, this work is expected to be completed early the third week of October.

The repaving of Judson Road and the remainder of Toepperwein Road is expected to begin in the coming weeks, and work will be completed during the night, according to city staff.

Following the completion of work on commercial streets, the first phase of residential street work will begin. When the bond passed in 2022, 10 residential streets and three connector streets were outlined as potential projects.

Work on residential streets will be broken into two phases. The second phase is in design with work expected to begin by summer 2024.

City staff is using mapping software to keep residents up to date on the road projects. Roads that are in the design phase are also listed. Project details and roads scheduled for repair can be found here.
