Whitley Road 2 Reconstruction
Whitley Road from Watauga Road to Chapman Road is currently in the final engineering design phase. We expect to advertise the project for construction in early April 2019 and bring a qualified bidder to the City Council for award consideration at the May 13, 2019 City Council Meeting.
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.
