Mesquite, TX – October 6, 2020 – On Oct. 5, the Mesquite City Council approved two separate contracts for a total of $5,586,886 in new residential street repairs. The repairs are a part of the ongoing Real. Texas. Roads. street bond program to repair roads in neighborhoods.
Paving improvements in the Quail Hollow neighborhood were approved with KIK Underground, LLC, in the amount of $1,431,320 and for Town East Estates with HQS Construction, LLC, in the amount of $4,155,566. The new contracts will provide localized concrete repair for street pavement, sidewalks, curb and gutters, as well as curb ramps to rehabilitate and repair streets that were selected for repair. Work is expected to begin November 2020. The Quail Hollow neighborhood pavement rehabilitation will take approximately six months to complete and the larger Town East Estates neighborhood pavement rehabilitation will take approximately 12 months to complete.

Mayor Bruce Archer said, “Quality streets in our neighborhoods is vital to maintaining community pride and curbside appeal of our housing stock. The City Council is committed to repairing as many residential streets as possible, as quickly as we can. Improving streets also improves neighborhood vitality. This program is not just about pavement, it’s about the people who live in Mesquite. While we are proud of all that has been repaired to date, we know we still have several neighborhoods to get to and we are working as fast as we can to get to them too.”
Mesquite is currently repairing six miles of residential streets on contracts approved by the City Council in June. These repairs are adding to the 27 miles of neighborhood streets already improved through the Real. Texas. Roads. program. It is funded by the $125 million bond sale approved by voters in November 2015. Repairs under this program are for residential, two-lane roadways.
