Construction crews will tackle nearly forty areas with aging, cracked or failing pavement as part of the city’s annual rehabilitation program.
Allen’s Community Services Department routinely assesses the condition of local streets and alleys to prioritize repairs. By removing and replacing failing concrete panels, the life span of the roadway is extended. The 2017 projects include numerous repairs along Bethany Drive east of US 75, and McDermott Drive between Alma Drive and Custer. See map.
Allen City Council approved a $1 million contract with SAZ Infrastructure during the June 27 meeting, following a competitive bidding process. The repairs will be funded by general obligation bonds and the city’s solid waste fund.
