Phase 11 Concrete Street Reconstruction
Three streets will be re-constructed to the same width as existing with reinforced concrete pavement. Existing sidewalk and driveway returns within right-of-ways will also be re-constructed. Storm drains, water/wastewater mains and street lights will also be replaced, as needed. The project has a construction cost of $4,234,033.50 to date and began construction in August 2022 with an estimated completion in August 2023. The streets to be re-constructed are as follows:
- Tucker Street and also includes a portion of Tyler Street

Squires Drive Street Paving, Vance Street Paving and Vaden Street 8 Inch Waterline Extension Project.
The project includes extending the Vaden Street 8-inch dead-end water line to Taylor Street to provide a looped connection to assist in providing better water quality in this area. The water line is being installed within existing City owned right-of-way. For the Squires Drive street reconstruction portion of this project, Squires Drive from 5412 Squires Drive to Taylor Street and a 100 feet section of Vance Street is being reconstructed to the same width as existing with 6–inch reinforced concrete pavement. Concrete sidewalk and barrier free ramps from 5412 Squires Drive (west) to Taylor Street are also being replaced. Various street panel replacements along Squires Drive from Taylor Street to Underwood Drive are also being performed. Existing utilities and street lights are being replaced as needed. The project has a construction cost of $2,355,676.00 and began construction in July 2023 with an estimated completion in January 2024.
Wastewater Pipe Crossing Replacement at Office Creek Project.
The project includes the replacement of an existing 8-inch wastewater line that crosses Office Creek just to the east of FM 423 near the existing Office Creek Pump Station. The pipe is currently visible in the creek and could be damaged or washed out and discharge wastewater into the creek. This project will consist of removing the exposed 8-inch wastewater line and replacing it with a new 12-inch wastewater line. The project also includes new wastewater manholes, concrete encasement of the new pipe and streambank stabilization. The project has a construction cost of $638,075.00 and is anticipated to begin construction in August 2023 with an estimated completion in March 2024
Stewart Peninsula Drainage Improvements Project:
This project includes the upsizing of the inlets and storm drain laterals in front of the homes located at 3821 and 3825 Shoal Creek Drive, removing sediment from an existing pond on the Stewart Creek Golf Course, rebuilding a drop structure downstream of the existing pond and installing an overflow pipe at the second pond downstream to help prevent flood damage to the course. The project has a construction cost of $894,683.00 and is anticipated to begin construction in August 2023 with an estimated completion in April 2024.
Phase 12 Concrete Street Reconstruction
Three (3) streets are being re-constructed to the same width as existing width reinforced concrete pavement. Existing sidewalk and driveway returns within right-of-ways are also being re-constructed. Storm drains, water/wastewater mains and street lights are also being replaced, as needed.
A new right turn lane for West Lake Highlands Drive at the FM 423 (Main Street) intersection was part of this project. The right turn lane was constructed with reinforced concrete pavement and included existing drainage system extension/reconstruction, traffic signal adjustments and striping/signage modifications. This right turn lane construction has been completed and is now open back up to traffic.
The project has a construction cost of $3,529,692.91 and began construction in January 2023 with an estimated completion in January 2024. The streets being re-constructed and new turn lane are as follows:
