2020 Projects

Robinson Road – This project is a County-led project regrarding the main lane improvements at the intersection only (Robinson/Patsy/Westwood). The County is merging its overpass project into the City's intersection. This project has been completed.  

IH-45 Waterline Phase 2 – This project consists of a proposed 12” waterline extension from the SW corner of the Bowlero property up to Paula Lane (north/south). From there, the project will replace an existing 8” waterline from IH-45 westward down Paula to the residential area. This project has been completed.

TWDB Phase 9 – This is the last in a series of Texas Water Development Board Grant projects by which we have replaced/lined all of the sanitary lines, manholes, etc in the City. This project used the last of the available monies to pipe-burst a problem area under Robinson at Maplewood, and then provide additional upsizing to the trunk line by pipe-burst method in accordance with our future plans  described in the 2014 Feasibility Study performed by Jones and Carter. This project has been completed.

Regional Detention – The City has secured an $840,000 grant to design and construct a regional detention facility on Spring Pines. Phase 1 of this project has been substantially completed, and is awaiting clearance for Phase 2. Phase 2 will deepen the detention basin and provide a total of 12.2 Acre-feet (531,400 cubic feet) of floodplain storage during heavy rains.
