The Plan: Real. Texas. Roads. is the program name for the road repairs funded by the $125 million bond sale approved by voters in November 2015. Repairs under this program are for residential, 2-lane roadways. The repairs began in 2016.
What's happening now: As of June 4, localized concrete repairs are still in progress on Royal Crest Drive, Northridge Drive and Summit Drive. Concrete spot repairs have been completed on Cascade Street and Cresthill Drive. Resurfacing is in progress on Sidney Drive, Rockne Lane and Morgan Drive. Statler Drive is complete. Utility work is underway to replace old water and sewer lines on Oriole Street, Ervin Lane, and Daffodil Drive.
Work anticipated in the next 30 days: Resurfacing will continue for the next 35 days on Morgan Drive, Sidney Drive, and Rockne Lane. Resurfacing is scheduled to begin on Cascade Street, Crest Park Drive and Summit Drive at the end of June. The next list of streets planned for concrete repairs include Alta Vista Street, Buena Vista Street, Willowbrook Drive, Lee Street, Larchmont Drive, Northview Place (cul-de-sac) and Mark Drive (between Baker Drive and Larchmont Drive).
Two construction contracts related to Real. Texas. Roads. work in southwest Mesquite have been awarded by the City Council. The first contract is for utility work that must be done before street rehabilitation in the area can begin. Utility work will begin on Rose Lane, Carnation Drive and Lilac Lane to replace old water lines prior to the street repairs. Contracts are being finalized so pavement rehabilitation can begin on Oriole Street and Ervin Lane. Please click here to see a presentation to the City Council explaining the three Real. Texas. Roads. contracts in southwest Mesquite.
Estimated completion date: The completion of all streets in the Real. Texas. Roads. program is expected to be completed in the fall of 2024, two years ahead of schedule.
