Real. Texas. Roads.
The Plan: The repair and rehabilitation of grade 4 residential streets, curbs and sidewalks, 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 on Bamboo are complete. Miscellaneous repairs and cleanup resumed on Rockne, Morgan Circle, Statler and Evans. Localized concrete repairs are still in progress on Mark, Chappelle, Embassy Greenhill, Cresthill and Cascade. Mill and resurfacing will soon take place on the following streets: Royal Crest, Upland, Pebble Creek, Redmill, Green Leaf, Statler, Shorewood, Sidney and Rockne.
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.
Estimated completion date: The original program includes the repair and rehabilitation of a large portion of grade 4 residential streets during 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 fall 2018. Construction on the third-year list of streets began late summer 2018.
