Street Improvements

                                                  STREET BOND PROJECT UPDATE

The street bond construction program started in March with Public Works working with our prime contractor Lone Star Paving. The weather has not been cooperative as it has rained quite a bit and it has hampered our schedule. Nonetheless, I’m pleased to report that we are making progress and we have completed the planned work in the Autumn Run, Silverton Valley and Cimarron Country subdivisions.

The work in the Copperfield is 95% complete with the only remaining street to be done is Copperway. We decided to delay the work on Copperway because KB Homes is currently building the water, sewer, drainage and street infrastructure in their next unit. They are using heavy trucks and equipment that use Copperway as their access to the construction site. The trucks and equipment will do damage to new pavement so it is best to wait until KB completes their work. We expect to pave Copperway in October.

Randolph Valley is approximately 85% complete and we expect to finish the work there next week weather permitting. We will begin work in the Meadows North Subdivision early next week and the last subdivision to be paved will be the Meadows. We anticipate working/paving in the Meadows in mid September. Several streets that include Gateway in Randolph Valley and Meadow Branch and Meadow Dale in the Meadows will require a different paving treatment. We will be using the reclamation paving process on these three streets so they will probably be done at the end of the program in October. Through the July billing cycle, we have expended $2,600,142 on the street program. Attached are some pictures throughout the project area of work that has already been completed.    


​                                             Notice to Residents on Sleepy St and Drowsy Ln
​                                                       Repaving Work to Start Soon

​This notice is to inform you that the City of Converse Public Works Department and Lone Star Paving will be working on your street in the next few days to complete much needed street resurfacing and repaving work (with weather permitting). This project is related to the 2015 City of Converse Bond issue that the voters approved in the November 2015 General Election. Street repaving crews will be doing a mill and asphalt overlay procedure that requires the use of heavy machinery and materials so it is essential that your personal vehicle be removed off the street. We will be putting out orange and black signs that say REMOVE VEHICLES FROM CURB--this is a warning that the paving work will be done on your street on that particular day. Any vehicles that are not moved will be towed. Also, please Do not water your lawn when the orange & black signs are on your street. Moisture has an adverse impact on the base material and affects the structure of the pavement. After the completion of the typical work day by the paving crew, your street will be opened for vehicle traffic and you will have access to your home. We will try to keep disruptions to a minimum however, please know that there will be detours and inconveniences until the work is complete. Our apologies in advance for disruptions but we believe you will be very happy with the road work once it is complete. ​​​

​​​​​​                                             Bond Project Update- Randolph Heights

Crews have been hard at work over the past several weeks doing resurfacing work in your neighborhood. Most of the work has been completed on Dalewood, Jeanette, Royal and Kingsman. Several issues have surfaced during the first phase of the project. You may have noticed that the work crews have been delayed due to the rainy weather. In addition, the subsurface material and the underlying base material have water moisture. This required the crews to do an extra level of repair work before the streets were paved with the final coating.

In order to assure that the resurfacing work is done correctly, the subsurface material needs to be dry. We believe that the subsurface of the streets--right now--are neither conducive nor optimal for resurfacing. This is due to the rainy springtime weather and also the underground water table is currently too high. As a result, we have determined that the best time to complete the road work is during the summer months when the warm and hot weather allows the subsurface and existing base material to dry. Therefore, after discussions with the paving contractor, the city engineer and public works staff, we have decided to postpone the remaining street work in Randolph Heights until conditions improve.

The paving crews will return to Randolph Heights in late June early July to complete the work on Renee, Ann, Vivian, Mayfair, Canterbury, Ralston, East & West Norris Drive, Downing, Castle Ct., Gateway, Crown Ct., and Kerrybrook.

We really appreciate your patience with us as we continue to work on this project.
