Real. Texas. Roads.
The Plan: The repair and rehabilitation of grade 4 residential streets, curbs and sidewalks over an eight-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: Localized concrete repairs are still in progress on, Crest Park and Viva Drive (Palm to Emerald). Localized concrete repairs are complete on Cascade and Cresthill and they are awaiting scheduling for mill and rehabilitation. Resurfacing for Royal Crest, Upland, Pebble Creek, Redmill and Green Leaf are finished.
What's next: Milling and resurfacing has started on the following streets: Morgan, Statler, Sidney Rockne and Viva Drive (the section between Town East Blvd. and Palm Drive). Localized concrete repairs are in progress for Summit, Northridge and Royal Crest. Clean-up for Royal Crest (between Kearny and Grubb), Upland, Pebble Creek, Redmill and Green Leaf are scheduled for the next 35 days.
The approved 2018 list of streets that are awaiting localized concrete repairs include Alta Vista, Buena Vista, Willow Brook, Lee, Larchmont, Northview and Mark Drive, (between Baker and Larchmont). Milling and resurfacing will be scheduled for streets after completion of all localized concrete repairs.
