Real. Texas. Roads.
The Plan: The repair and rehabilitation of approximately 100 miles of residential streets, 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: Miscellaneous repairs and cleanup is taking place on Bamboo. The 2018 list of approved streets receiving localized concrete repairs are complete on Moon Drive, Rockne, Morgan Drive, Morgan Circle, Royal Crest, Upland, Pebble Creek, Redmill and Green Leaf. Localized concrete repairs are still in progress on Sidney, Statler, Shorewood, Evans, Cascade, Mark, Greenhill, Chapell and Embassy.
What's next: Crews are completing the second year (2017) list of streets and will continue localized concrete repair on the 2018 list of streets. Staff is working with the contractor to agree on terms based on the changes presented at the August 6 City Council briefing and is expected to be finalized by late September.
Estimated completion date: The original program includes the repair and rehabilitation of approximately 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. Construction on the second-year list of streets is scheduled to be completed summer 2018. Construction on the third-year list of streets will begin late summer 2018.
