On Wednesday night, the Flower Mound Town Council approved a construction agreement with Ed Bell Construction Company for the Waketon Road project.
Ed Bell’s $4,335,111 bid was the lowest of six bidders, according to the town. The project is an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement with Double Oak — Double Oak’s share is about $2.3 million, and Flower Mound’s is just over $2 million.
The project consists of the upgrade of the existing two-lane open section asphalt roadway to a two-lane urban collector street on Waketon Road from the Cross Timbers Drive intersection to just east of the Chinn Chapel intersection, about three-quarters of a mile. The project includes the installation of the two-lane concrete street including an enclosed drainage system and a roundabout at the Waketon Road/Chinn Chapel intersection. It will improve the deteriorating condition of the road and make it more drivable.
The project will be completed in two phases, with phase one focusing on the eastern project limits to the Chinn Chapel roundabout and phase two on Chinn Chapel to the western project limits. Construction is expected to begin by July, and the project should be substantially completed by July 2022, and totally complete by August 2022, according to the town.
