PROJECTS in CONSTRUCTION

W. LUCAS ROAD WIDENING -- In Construction (Updated November 30, 2017)

A few days were added to the contract because of the extra work added in change orders #1 and #2.  The first change order added the work across the south end of Walmart and the new westbound W. Lucas Road to northbound Angel Parkway free right turn lane.  There was more repair work needed to the base material between Country Club Road and Angel Parkway.  So, additional repair work was added in change order #2.  The final overlay should be completed by December 1, and the striping and signage will be added by the 8th of December.

PARKER ROAD 12-INCH WATERLINE PHASE 1-SECTION 1 -- In Construction (Updated November 30, 2017)

The contractor has completed all the work between Stinson Road and Toole Drive.  The next phase will be between Toole Drive and Enchanted Way.  The contractor is reviewing the change order for this last phase.  If the change order is approved, the contractors will resume the week of December 11.  The work should be completed by the 15th of January 2018.

WHITE ROCK TRAIL PAVEMENT REPAIR -- In Construction (Updated November 21, 2017)

Due to issues involving the quality of the concrete, all work has stopped on White Rock Trail.  Staff and the contractor are reviewing various options to keep the project moving forward.  The tentative schedule has the construction work starting back up by December 15.

SNIDER LANE EIGHT-INCH WATERLINE -- In Construction (Updated November 30, 2017)

The installation of the new waterline is complete between White Rock Creek and Lakekview Downs.  The contractor is cleaning the new eight-inch waterline.  When it passes all the required testing, the contractor will start moving the exiting services from the old waterline to the new waterline in December.  

WINNINGKOFF REVERSE CURVE -- In Construction (Updated November 30, 2017)

The project has been awarded by the City Council to GRod Construction, Inc.  GRod plans to close the road to through traffic on December 4.  For the most part, Winningkoff will remain closed until next spring.  During most of the work the following Winningkoff Road addresses will have access from E. Lucas Road:  940, 950, 960, and 970.  The following will have access from the Forestview Drive or Winningkoff Road north of Forestview Drive:  820, 980, and 1020.  Initially Forestview Drive will be closed between Mala Court and Winningkoff Road.

STINSON ROAD/W. LUCAS ROAD INTERSECTION (Updated November 30, 2017)

Staff has received the 90% plans from the consultant and is reviewing the plans.  The project will be advertised in January 2018 with two possible sets of project limits:  1) The widening of Stinson Road south of W. Lucas Road or 2) widening of Stinson Road south of W. Lucas Road and the addition of a new westbound W. Lucas Road to southbound Stinson Road left turn lane.  After receiving the bids, the Lucas City Council will determine which set of project limits will be constructed based on budget, timing, etc.  The current plan for northbound Stinson Road is to widen it to two lanes:  left turn and right turn lanes.  Southbound will remain one lane.

PARKER ROAD WATERLINE PHASE 2 -- In Design (Updated November 30, 2017)

This waterline project is needed to improve infrastructure and to accommodate the TxDOT Parker Road widening, which is causing City of Lucas to abandon an existing six-inch waterline along Parker Road.  

This project is from Lewis Lane to east of Santa Fe Trail.  BW2 Engineers were engaged in January 2017 in the amount of $33,500 and have started design work.  The estimated cost (Construction & Contingency) was originally $348,000, but the scope of the project has been changed.  New cost figures are not available at this time.  The alignment has not been set yet for the waterlines (download alignment map). 

Parker Rd WL PH2

A) This segment is no longer an option due to the narrowness of the TxDOT right-of-way.  Staff is exploring the use of existing easements between Lewis Lane and Cimarron Trail to bore a six-inch or open cut a six-inch waterline along A.1 or A.2.  If A.1 is used, the short section between A.1 and B will be replaced with a new PVC six-inch waterline.  If A.2 is used, the existing Lewis Lane waterline between A.1 and A.2 will remain in operation.  Staff is preparing easement documents for a connection between Santa Fe Trail and Project 3T. 

B) Bore six-inch waterline north between 6 and 8 Indian Trail then west between 8 Cimarron Trail and 9 Chisholm Trail in existing easements to the existing waterline on the west side of Cimarron Trail.

C) Replace the Indian Trail two-inch waterline with a six-inch waterline and add fire hydrants in existing right-of-way.

D) This section will most likely become part of the Parker Road Waterline Phase 3T project.  This section will be a six-inch bored waterline north of the TxDOT right-of-way in a Lucas waterline easement.

PARKER ROAD WATERLINE PHASE 3T -- In Design (Updated August 31, 2017)

To maintain water service to the homes along Parker Road east of the Kirkland Estates West neighborhood and west of Stinson Road, staff will be requesting a 10-wide easement along the southern edge of each property (the first 10 feet north of the new TxDOT right-of-way line) to place a new waterline to serve their homes.

This waterline project is needed to improve infrastructure and to accommodate the TxDOT Parker Road widening, which is causing City of Lucas to abandon an existing six-inch waterline along Parker Road.

This project extends from Santa Fe Trail where Phase 2 ends to Stinson Road.  Staff will be notifying the property owners along Parker Road from Santa Fe Trail to Stinson Road regarding the need for narrow easements along their southern property line just north of the TxDOT right-of-way.  These easements are necessary to maintain water service to these properties.

NORTH PUMP STATION WATER TOWER AND PUMP HOUSE -- In Design (Updated July 21, 2017)

By adding a 500,000-gallon elevated storage tank at the North Pump Station (915 Country Club Road, a few blocks north of city hall), the lower pressure plane will be elimination.  This will increase the manageability of the water system and increase water storage capacity.  The in-line pressure regulating values will be necessary to maintain 60 to 80 pounds of pressure throughout the city waterworks.  The estimated cost (Design, Construction & Contingency) is $2,190,844.  This project will also include a new five-pump station and a secondary fill waterline from Wiltshire Court.  The primary fill waterline is a 42-inch NTMWD waterline on the east side of Country Club Road.  The secondary fill waterline will allow the new water tower to be filled by using pressure from the McGarity water tower.  The primary fill waterline for the McGarity water tower is an 84-inch NTMWD waterline on the east side of Angel Parkway.   BW2 Engineers was retained for this design work (download revised schedule October 17, 2017).
