The project consists of an asphalt overlay of Highland Village Road between the KCS Railroad and the Brazos Boulevard/Highland Shores Boulevard intersection. The overlay on the northern and eastern portions of Highland Village Road was completed in a previous project.
If funding allows, the overaly will also include Nowlin, Stone Canyon and Canyon Creek which are side streets off of Highland Village Road.
The project is being done in conjunction with the Highland Village Road water line replacement project, which is expected to be complete in late spring. The overlay project is anticipated to begin this summer.
