Public Works projects on the horizon this summer

Wednesday, May 2 2018 11:11 AM

As temperatures rise the City looks to begin construction projects to maintain and improve the city’s infrastructure. Public Works Director Cheryl Taylor gave an update to the City Council during the May 1 worksession.

This May, the City is continuing a partnership with Tarrant County to conduct several road maintenance programs across Colleyville.

Tarrant County will conduct maintenance on Bluebonnet Road, Montclair Drive, Wayne Drive, and Pleasant Run Road north of John McCain Road. Residents in the work areas will receive letters of the upcoming work and message boards will be at the work sites.

“This is a good example of efficient use of government resources,” Mayor Richard Newton said. “The County workers do a great job and we appreciate the County assisting us and saving Colleyville taxpayers’ dollars.”

In this partnership the City pays for the project materials while the County manages the project and pays for the labor. This saves the City 40-percent of project costs and allows four streets to be repaired as opposed to one or two for the same amount of funding.

Public Works also has several projects on schedule including:

Frontier Court – This project includes improving the local drainage and rehabilitating the roadway.

Water Project #8 – Installation of pressure relief and flow control valves in the city’s northwest quadrant to automatically reduce high system pressures between the two existing pressure zones in the water system to acceptable levels, rather than manually.

Manning Drive – This project will replace the 2,200 linear feet 6” wastewater line with an 8” line while improving the roadway. Crews will also improve Stafford, Oak Knoll, and Bowmen drives.

These larger projects are in addition to the work outlined in the Local Street Maintenance Program. The program for 2018 includes mill and overlay, asphalt overlay, micro-resurfacing, and base repair projects throughout the city. Some of the roads in the 2018 plan are John McCain Road, L.D. Lockett Road, Oak Timber Court, and Thompson Terrace. Visit Colleyville.com to view the program.
