Construction Project Updates

Utility crews are completing the water services along Grand Avenue from 4th SW to 1st SW, and installing the main line along Clarksville from Main to 3rd.  The overall phasing sequence has been modified, and the water line will be installed along the following streets, in this order:  Grand, Clarksville, Bonham, Lamar, West Plaza, North Plaza then South Plaza.

For questions regarding the project please call the Engineering Department at 903-784-9292.

Church Street Reconstruction

Construction is underway on South Church. The contractor has installed sanitary sewers from Hearne to Washington, and they have prepared the subgrage for the first layers of asphalt.  Rain has delayed the asphalt paving operations, but as soon as the subgrade dries out they will install the asphalt base layer and begin building the concrete curb and gutters.   

Church Street will remain closed to all traffic from Hearne to Long until the asphalt base can be installed, which is weather dependent.  

Loop 286 Sewer Replacement

Replacement of a 27" sanitary sewer around the NE Loop 286 continues. The contractor has completed the sewer main across the FM 195 intersection, by bore.  Most of the new sewer is installed and operational, however the contractor will return for some final work in the upcoming weeks.

6th Street SE

Utility work is complete on 6th SE, and the contractor will return for base and surface repairs to the street in the spring months.

Clarksville Street Water Line

STREET CLOSURE - The intersection of Clarksville and 12th Street will be closed beginning February 11th in order to connect the new water main.  Please heed all traffic control devices and directions.  

A new waterline is installed along Clarksville Street from 3rd SE to Collegiate.  The contractor is working on side street connections and bacteriological testing. Periodic lane closures  on Clarksville are necessary during work hours to accommodate equipment.

17th Street Replacement 

The 17th Street project is part of the 2017 Street Bond Program, and consists of full depth pavement replacement, including enclosed storm sewers, along 17th SE from Clarksville to Lamar, as well as an asphalt overlay from Lamar to Pine Bluff. PaveCon Public Works is the contractor, and work is anticipated to begin February 2019, once Atmos Gas completes their relocation project.
