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.

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.
