The city of Hutto is pleased to report several street and drainage improvement projects have been completed with more scheduled for completion throughout 2018. New equipment purchased by the City for a stand-alone Streets and Drainage department has contributed to the ability of the City to repair streets rather than contracting the services out to other companies.
This purchase and the development of a comprehensive infrastructure improvement program is part of the Magnificent 7, a group of projects and investments prioritized by the City Council to enhance Hutto’s infrastructure and public safety.
Here is an update on the current projects:
- Early summer projects include road and base repair, along with sealing to address “alligator cracking” issues on Great Western, as well as base replacement along a 100 ft. stretch of Gainer Drive.
- Schneider Boulevard had gutters and curbs poured. The City anticipates paving the eastern half of the roadway in next few weeks.
- Drainage projects in Country Estates and along Limmer Loop were completed in March 2018, leading to reduced mosquito infestation during the summer and mitigation of road flooding issues.
- Two road maintenance projects in Riverwalk and Lakeside Estates were completed in late 2017. Both projects involved crack-sealing the roads to prevent damage to main arterial roads. The City of Hutto also completed construction on the City-controlled section of County Road 119. It has been milled and overlaid, and is considered substantially complete.
- Stewart Drive and Johnson Cove have been repaired. Stewart Drive repairs involved fixing sunken areas and road base failures, while the work on Johnson Cove will repaired the base and road surface.
- The high spot at the intersection of Cockrill Court and Cockrill Street has been repaired.
- Alligator cracking and base and road repair on Carl Stern Drive between Chris Kelley Boulevard and Front Street is complete ahead of schedule and saving the City approximately a million dollars by using the newly purchased equipment for the Streets & Drainage department.
- The work on Pheasant Cove has been completed. This was the last of three drainage flumes in Clark’s Crossing was to be regraded through City of Hutto easements.
