The City of Colleyville plans to bring the 40-year-old Kingston Estates neighborhood up to date.

City Council approved the city’s plans to reconstruct streets, drainage and infrastructure, which were influenced by resident feedback.

City Engineer Jeremy Hutt said the city received feedback from 58% of the neighborhood during a public hearing this summer.

“I think that may be the best we’ve ever had as far as a project of this size,” he said.

The plans, which are estimated to cost $1.8 million include expanding the roads on the horse-shoe neighborhood from an average of 14 feet street width to 28. That size will allow for road-side parking and access by emergency vehicles.

The plans also include adding more street lights, and curb and gutter drainage to elevate drainage issues in the area.

“It’ll be good to get this project done,” said Mayor David Kelly. “It’s been on our agenda for years.”
