SAN ANGELO – As we reported first, the San Angelo City Council awarded the North Chadbourne Street Project bid in the amount of $6.22 million to Reece Albert Inc., which was the sole respondent to the request for bids for the paving project.
According to the City, the overall project includes roadway rehabilitation and utility infrastructure improvements, the latter of which were bid separately and completed in June 2022.
The project includes repaving N. Chadborne from 7th St. at the Houston Harte Expressway all the way out to 43rd St. near the San Angelo Coliseum.
Construction is projected to begin January 2024 and is anticipated to have a 6-month construction time frame.
The project will include stabilization of the roadway base layer and concrete improvements at the approaches of driveways, intersections and gutters.
The project will be utilizing a method called full-depth reclamation (FDR) which was recently used along Rio Concho Drive with success. This method should provide a more robust roadway with enhanced longevity across the entire corridor.
North Chadbourne from 7th to 43rd was identified in the 2015 Fugro Street Study as one of the top roadways for rehabilitation. This roadway has experienced deterioration to the point that rehabilitation is necessary to reestablish a safe and rideable surface. The overall project included not only the roadway rehabilitation, but water and sewer utility infrastructure improvements as well. The utility replacement portion was bid as a separate project and was concluded in June 2022.
The original 2015 study identified portions of this corridor as candidates for mill-and-overlay and
reconstruction, respectively. Since that report, the City has experienced success in its pilot project for full depth reclamation (FDR) along Rio Concho Drive. Using this new information and success, Staff determined that reassigning the two respective rehab methods to FDR for the full length of N. Chadbroune would provide a more robust project overall with enhanced longevity across the entire corridor.
