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.

The pavement lifting process is taking place at various locations on Chapell Drive, Cascade Street and Embassy Drive.
What's next: Crews are completing the second year (2017) list of streets.
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.
