Brazos Boulevard is a new 37 foot wide curb and gutter street that is under construction from Red River Drive to Rio Grande Boulevard.

Construction began on July 16, 2014 and is expected to be completed by mid-December.  Construction is approximately 70% complete.

CULLUM DRIVE RECONSTRUCTION

Cullum Drive is being reconstructed from SH 10 to East Huitt Lane.  The street improvements will upgrade this portion of the roadway from a two lane county road type section with open drainage to a standard curb and gutter street section with underground drainage systems.

City Council awarded the contract to McClendon Construction of Burleson, Texas.  Construction began on January 20, 2014 and was scheduled to be completed in October, 2014.  Current expected completion is early December.

Currently, the contractor has completed the street paving, driveway entrances and sidewalks.  The contractor is working on the landscaping to complete the project.

RIO GRANDE BOULEVARD CONSTRUCTION

The project will construct approximately 2,970 linear feet of the Rio Grande Boulevard extension to Cheek-Sparger Road. Two side streets will connect the southbound SH 121 frontage road with Rio Grande Boulevard. The southbound SH 121 frontage road will be widened to accommodate the entrances to the side streets. The project will complete the bridge over Little Bear Creek, provide landscaping and irrigation to the medians, and construct entry features along the southbound SH 121 entry connections and Cheek-Sparger Road.

City Council awarded the contract to Mario Sinacola & Sons, Inc. of Frisco, Texas.  Construction began on January 27, 2014 and  was scheduled to be completed in August, 2014.  Due to delays caused by several utility companies, the expected completion date is now sometime in November.

TARRANT COUNTY CDBG ACCESSIBILITY RAMPS AND SIDEWALKS PROJECT

The accessibility ramp and sidewalk project is progressing but slightly behind schedule. Construction should be completed by the end of December. Crews have nearly completed their work in the Midway Park subdivision area and have moved to the east side of Main Street on Midway Drive. Crews will also be working along Main Street north of Fair Oaks Blvd. in the immediate future. Work will continue to be done on the following streets: 

  • Midway Drive, North Main Street, Fair Oaks Boulevard, Parker Drive, Fayette Drive, Hollywood Boulevard, Martha Street, and Broadway Drive

STREET LIGHT PROJECT

ARANSAS DRIVE

Seven (7) new street lights have been installed on Aransas Drive.  A minor adjustment will be made in the next few days to one of the street lights.  Afterwards minor concrete repairs will be made on the sidewalks.

WATERLINE PROJECT

EL CAMINO REAL WATERLINE REPLACEMENT

The existing 8” residential water main along El Camino Real from West Pipeline Road to the south city limits is in need of replacement due to its deteriorating condition and inadequate size.  With the installation of a new 10” line, the incidents of water breaks should decrease and with the larger volume of water available in the 10” line, greater pressure can be maintained for residents, and also for fire protection as necessary.

Bids were opened June 4, 2014 and the project was awarded at the June 24th City Council meeting to A&M Construction and Utilities, Inc.

Construction began on July 21st and is expected to be completed by the end of November.

Construction is approximately 90% complete.
