Plano City Council OKs work on several city streets

Repair work will be done this summer on several Plano streets, at the request of Darrin Boyer, director of public works and water reclamation.

He submitted a request to Plano City Council members Monday night asking for approval to do the work which is estimated to cost $317,717. The projects will cover 4,472 lineal feet of roads, he said in his request.

The projects include 275 feet of Hugh Street between North and Clark streets, 680 feet from the south end of Hugh Street to Rock Street, and 255 feet of Hugh Street from Rock to Charles streets. Also 210 feet of Steward Street between Center and James streets, 490 feet of Oak Street between Lucas and Dearborn streets, and 560 feet of Harve Street between Dearborn and Charles streets.

Also included are two areas of Jones Street. They are 310 feet between Lew and Oak streets, and 1,692 feet between Ben and James streets.

The costs were estimated by Robert E. Hamilton consulting engineers, Boyer told council members.

Boyer said they have not yet asked for bids, so the actual cost of the work is not yet known. If funds allow, he also would like to include 235 feet of North Street between Oak and Sears, and 535 feet of North Street between Sears and East streets.

Hamilton’s estimated cost of these two projects is $63,194, Boyer said.

The final project cost will be paid from his department’s budget of $315,000 appropriated this year from non-motor fuel tax funds for street repairs.

He said the list of approved streets may have be amended, depending on the final bids.

These projects were chosen as top priorities by Boyer from a list of 22 street projects. The total 22 projects would cover just over two miles of streets at an estimated cost of $817,886, Boyer said.
