Residential Street Rebuilt Project Begins Construction on 7 Streets & Seeks Public Input
AUGUST 3, 2020
The Residential Street Rebuild Program (RSRP) is under development and will address the City's residential streets in poor condition. Two methods of pavement rebuild work are expected: rehabilitation and reconstruction.
Rehabilitation is performed on streets that are in poor condition, but the base material under the pavement is in pretty good shape. This option is used to stretch construction dollars further by recycling some of the existing base and/or pavement, doing only a small amount of concrete work, and minimizing the amount of underground utility work that is done.
Reconstruction is performed on streets for which both the pavement and base material is unusable and the pavement structure has failed. With reconstruction, the entire street (pavement and base) is removed and replaced. Typically, there is some limited replacement of curb & gutter, sidewalks, and driveway aprons (entrances). A limited amount of underground utility work may be done as well.

In November 2018, residents approved a nearly $11 Million Bond project to continue rebuilding residential streets. Bond funds allocated to this project will be distributed among all five Council Districts according to each District’s need for residential street rebuild relative to the total city need.
Update: They City’s Public Works Department received approval from Council in June 2020 to move forward with construction on 34 streets as part of the Residential Street Rebuild Project. Construction is expected to begin in June 2020 and continue through 2021.
This is where you will be able to find informational brochures, FAQs, Public Meeting documents and more information about the program.
As part of the fiscal 2018 budget, City Council approved an additional $3.4 million dollars for funding to rebuild residential streets.
Update: Candidate streets have been selected and include; Opengate, Fox Run, Topeka, Harry, Woodway Creek, Pernitas Creek, and Turkey Creek. Work is expected to begin November 2019 and continue to Summer 2020.
In November 2016, residents approved an $11 Million Bond project to rebuild residential streets. In March 2017, Council approved the street selection steps and the evaluation/prioritization criteria for the RSRP. Funding for this project was distributed among all five Council Districts according to each District’s need for residential street rebuild relative to the total city needs.
Two streets were selected as test projects to help develop the RSRP. The projects provided current construction costing information, design, scoping, and detailed constructions requirements needed to help develop an effective program. These projects were funded by monies committed to residential street reconstruction from the General Fund and Industrial District in-lieu of tax revenues.
Update: The two test projects were completed in the Fall of 2018.
