Roadway, Water, and Construction Projects

Fiscal Year 2020/2021 Street Maintenance Work – Some touch up work was done on Stinson Road this week. Several citizens have expressed gratitude and said thank you to the City for the new Stinson Road asphalt. The Blondy Jhune Road work is finished. The week after Thanksgiving, TexasBit will be addressing some areas along West Lucas Road. The next project is the southern 1,300 feet +/- of Winningkoff Road approximately between East Lucas Road and Rollingwood Drive which will be done next spring. Forest Grove Road from Stonegate Boulevard to Orr Road is the last project for FY 20/21 and is planned for next summer.

Winningkoff Road Phase 2 – Dallas Tree Service continues their work this week. Staff continues to meet with a few property owners about tree replacement. The contractor, Camino, is planning to start the main roadwork during the first two weeks of January 2021.

Winningkoff Reverse Curve – The contractor plans to start on Monday, but they will not narrow Winningkoff Road to one lane until after Thanksgiving. Two-way traffic will be maintained via a yield sign.  The work should last two to three weeks: November 30 to December 11.

Major Culvert Maintenance – There are three major culvert maintenance projects underway in Lucas: 1) Stinson Bridge, 2) South Winningkoff, and 3) Brookhaven. Staff has been working with BCC Engineering (formally known as Lakes Engineering) on the maintenance needs of two culverts: 1) South Winningkoff culvert 800 north of East Lucas Road and 2) Stinson Bridge at Muddy Creek. The Stinson culvert needs were outlined in the Lakes report dated July 22, 2019. BCC has determined the preliminary estimate for the Stinson culvert maintenance to be between $25,000 and $30,000. They have not completed all the work on the Stinson Bridge maintenance plan, and they are still gathering data on the South Winningkoff culvert. The third culvert in need is located on the southwest leg of Brookhaven Drive. The culvert pipes under Brookhaven Drive have separated due to shifting of the headwalls. City Engineer Stanton Foerster has received bid on the patching work in the amount of $12,500, and he is still waiting on the headway demolition and rock rip rap reinforcement bid from Four Star.

Bait Shop Intersection – TxDOT has provided staff with a timeline for the City’s relocation of the 12-inch waterlines along West Lucas Road, Southview Drive, and East Lucas Road. TxDOT is requesting the City submit 100% plans to TxDOT for review by March 2021. TxDOT has determined that all existing utilities within the current rights-of-way must be relocated by March of 2022. This includes the relocation of the City waterlines. TxDOT has not set a date for the letting of the Bait Shop Intersection work yet, but it will not be sooner than March of 2022. This project will be added to the CIP.

Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) – Staff is planning to bring the updated CIP to the City Council at the January 7, 2021, City Council meeting.

Stinson Road Bridge – Dr. Tissing (1190 Stinson Road), Chris Meszler with BCC Engineer, and the City Engineer met to discuss possible mitigation to the extensive landscaping and hardscape along the west side of Stinson Road immediately north of the bridge. Per City Council direction, BCC is moving forward with the initial design elements of the bridge, which include keeping the alignment of the roadway in its present location.
