Work is underway to repair damage to Highland Village Road from last month’s heavy rainfall.
Denton County has entered into a design-build contract with Halff and Associates engineers and construction services with Saber Development to complete the repairs to the road, according to Highland Village City Manager Michael Leavitt.
The necessary improvements include raising the road three-and-a-half feet in the vicinity of the boat docks to prevent future flooding of the roadway. The project will also include two new 10 foot wide drainage structures and a 10 foot wide trail.
The $1.78 million for the project was approved within the County 2008 TRIP Bond Program.
“We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to include this project in the 2008 County TRIP Bond Program. This area of roadway was identified for improvements and was on the schedule for reconstruction,” said Mayor Scott McDearmont. “The county has worked quickly to expedite the funding for this project.”
The project is being coordinated with the Lewisville Corps of Engineers and is scheduled to be completed by late March 2011.
