Construction Projects

As part of its plan for continuous improvement, the City of Watauga Public Works Department will periodically undertake a water, sewer, street or traffic construction project. These projects focus on the city's infrastructure in the most need of repair.  Street or traffic projects may be implemented to provide for safe and effective driving conditions for all Watauga residents and visitors. Information on the most current construction projects will be added once the planning and bidding processes for the project are complete. 

Street Rehabilitation

    Project 2017/2018

The following streets have been rehabilitated during the 2017/2018 maintenance program. This program is funded by the ¼ cent sales tax for street maintenance.

  • Birchhill Rd.
  • Lamar St.
  • Carousel Dr.
  • Valley View Dr.
  • Cedarhill Rd.
  • Hillcrest Dr.

Elevated Storage Tank - Water Tower

The Water Tower was drained on October 12th and the interior of the water tank shall be cleaned and recoated to protect the tank. The project is scheduled to take 45 days and during this time, the City may experience slightly lower water pressure. However, we are working with the City of North Richland Hills who provides water to Watauga to ensure we have safe and adequate water service. The existing Water Tower has been in operation since 1999. Should any lower pressure situation occur due to main breaks, mechanical pump failures, etc., the City may enforce water restrictions and would notify the citizens of Watauga.

Starnes Road 16" Water Main:

The Starnes Road 16” Water Main replacement project from Indian Springs Road to Rufe Snow Drive is currently in the Engineering Design Phase.  The plan includes abandoning the existing 16" water main, placing a new 16” water main, and repairing the street cuts with concrete paving.  Construction is planned to start in December 2018.

Whitley Road 2 Reconstruction

Whitley Road from Watauga Road to Chapman Road is currently in the engineering design phase.  A Public Input Meeting was held on January 23, 2018 at 7105 Whitley Road, Watauga, Texas in the City Hall Council Chambers.  The Citizen involvement was excellent and our engineering team is reviewing the comments to incorporate some into the project.

The project includes complete reconstruction of the street, storm water drainage system, 16” water main, and related wastewater infrastructure.  The new street shall be concrete with sidewalks along the sides of the street.  Burgess Niple is the Engineering Design firm working on the plans.
