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 July 1, localized concrete repairs are still in progress on Royal Crest Drive, Northridge Drive and Summit Street. Concrete spot repairs have been completed on Cascade Street and Cresthill Drive. Resurfacing is in progress on Rockne Lane and Morgan Drive. Statler Drive and Sidney Drive are complete. Utility work is underway to replace old water and sewer lines on Lilac Lane, Carnation Drive, Rose Lane and Daffodil Drive.
Work anticipated in the next 30 days: Resurfacing will continue for the next several weeks on Morgan Drive and Rockne Lane. Milling Operations started in July on Cascade Street, Crest Park Drive, Northridge Street, Royal Crest Drive and Summit Street. The next list of streets scheduled for concrete spot repairs include Alta Vista Street, Buena Vista Street, Willowbrook Drive, Lee Street, Larchmont Drive, Northview Place (cul-de-sac), Mark Drive and Longview Street.
Utility work in the Valley View Heights area should be completed within the next month and it is expected that the street rehabilitation contract to repair the paving on Oriole Street, Ervin Lane, and Valley View Heights will begin in August.
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.
