Real. Texas. Roads.
The Plan: It includes the repair of more than 100 miles of residential streets, as well as curbs and sidewalks where needed, over a ten-year period.
The repair method chosen for each street depends on the existing condition of the street. However, the usual order of repairs is: 1) pavement lifting; 2) localized concrete repair; 3) new surface reconstruction; and 4) miscellaneous repairs and cleanup.

What's happening now: Repairs to the first year's list of residential streets have been completed with 26 streets reconstructed. Repairs are in progress on Bonita Vista Circle, Bamboo Street, Moon Drive, Hula Drive, Sidney Drive, Red Mill Lane, Upland Land, Green Leaf Lane, Pebble Creek Lane, and Royal Crest Drive.
What's next: Crews are finishing construction and pavement of the second year (2017) list of streets in Section A. Construction on hold for the third-year of streets until completion and approval of the Engineering Review of Construction Methods.
Estimated completion date: The original program includes the repair of more than 100 miles of residential streets over a ten-year period. However, the City Council has decided to accelerate the program to complete it within eight years. The program is expected to be completed fall 2024. Current construction on the second-year list of streets is scheduled to be completed spring 2018. Construction on the third-year list of streets will begin summer 2018.
