Robinson Road – the main lane improvements at the intersections only (Robinson/Patsy, Robinson/Hanna). The County is merging their overpass project into ours and doing the Patsy intersection for the City, but we have to get the additional ROW needed.
Robinson Road Turn Lane – this is the proposed turn lane that would go into Commerce Park.
IH-45 Waterline Phase 2 – This is a waterline project that Bleyl Associates designed the first phase of for us. This will continue a proposed 12” waterline from the SW corner of the Bowlero property up to Paula Lane (north/south). From there, the project will replace an existing 8” line from IH-45 westward down Paula to the residential area. T
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 uses that last of the available monies to pipe-burst a problem area under Robinson at Maplewood, and then provide additional upsizing by pipe-burst method on our downstream trunk line in accordance with our future plans (Feasibility Study).
Regional Detention – We have tentatively secured an $850,000 grant to do a regional detention facility on Spring Pines.
Parks – replacement of the decking around ME Park pool (approx. $70K), and replacement of the park equipment at the “pocket park” in Oak Ridge Grove (approx. $4,000).
Drainage project – Projects to provide relief in the back property lines of Maplewood, Hillside, and Westwood. These areas have a lot of water run through the backyards and flood their garages and houses. This project would be a simple concrete lines ditch along the back property lines to intercept lot-to-lot runoff and convey it downstream to our improved storm drain system.
Woodson Road Widening at IH-45 – This would expand the turning radii on Woodson at IH-45.
Curb/Gutter Replacement, City Hall Parking Lot – City Hall parking lot has been designed also like to fix a few curbs including Maplewood at Robinson, Jimmy Lane, etc.
