City Council Approves $1.5 Million Engineering for Road Construction


SAN ANGELO, TX – The San Angelo City Council approved another $1.5 million for engineering of road construction projects Monday that will eventually completely redo a number of roads in west San Angelo.

According to the City Council Agenda, on May 18,  members approved a project in the City's Capital Improvement Program to provide engineering services for reconstruction on Howard St. from Sherwood Way, US Hwy Bus 67, to Glenna Dr.

Kimley Horn, Inc. will provide engineering services to provide paving, utilities, and signal improvements along Howard Street, between Glenna Street to Sherwood Way, which is approximately 1.75 miles. These improvements will include water and wastewater line improvements, mill and inlay of existing asphalt concrete pavement, proposed sidewalk at the park trail, proposed signals at limited intersections, PROWAG ADA improvements at limited signal locations, and proposed concrete alleys.

The second project in the City's CIP program will be design and engineering services to rebuild Glenna Dr., Edmund Blvd. and 29th St. from Houston Hart to Chadbourne St. consisting of three distinct segments of full depth reconstruction, and two distinct segments of mill and overlay.

Freese and Nichols, Inc will be responsible for the second project's engineering services to design the needed roadway and utility improvements.

The following is a picture of the second project.
