The Victoria City Council during the past month approved projects totaling more than $2.7M to rehabilitate streets and utilities in the North Heights subdivision, design a drainage and street repair project in the Lone Tree Acres subdivision, place a seal coat in four additional subdivisions and update road striping around the city.

A map highlighting the Riata subdivisionThe City Council at its March 16 meeting awarded an $863,925 contract for a seal coat project in the Cimarron, Riata, Silverado Trail and Waterstone subdivisions. The project will include leveling the streets, completing base repairs as needed and applying a seal coat followed by an Onyx surface course.

A citywide street assessment completed in 2020 confirmed that the subdivision streets are in good condition and will therefore benefit from the project, which will extend the life of the streets by preserving their condition. The project is expected to begin in May and finish in August.

The total projected cost of the program is $16,100,790, and the program is expected to conclude by summer 2023.

The current phase of the project includes reconstruction of part of San Antonio Street and nearby side streets as well as curb and gutter replacement, storm sewer improvements and driveway replacement. Construction is expected to begin in April 2021 and finish in April 2022.

The project will include construction of a drainage outfall, roadside ditch improvements and street reconstruction. The design phase is scheduled for completion in October.

The council also awarded a $199,245.15 contract for a striping project on portions of Ball Airport Road, Guy Grant Road, Laurent Street, Ben Jordan Street, Juan Linn Street, Odem Street, Pleasant Green Drive, Lone Tree Road and Water Street at the Feb. 23 meeting. The project is expected to be completed in July 2021.
