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: Resurfacing is taking place on Bamboo and miscellaneous repairs and clean up is taking place on Hula Drive and Bonita Vista (2017 streets). The 2018 list of approved streets receiving localized concrete repairs are Moon Drive, Sidney, Statler, Rockne, Royal Crest, Upland, Pebble Creek, Red Mill and Green Leaf. The pavement lifting process is taking place on Willow Brook, Crest Park, Alta Vista, Buena Vista, Mark Drive and Larchmont.
What's next: Crews are finishing construction and pavement of the second year (2017) list of streets in Section A. Construction is 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.
