Nothing like a little help from a neighbor to help make something better.
In Colleyville the city partnered with Tarrant County for several road maintenance projects in May.
Tarrant County workers repaired Bluebonnet Road, Montclair Drive, Wayne Drive, and Pleasant Run Road north of John McCain Road.
The city paid for the materials and the county managed the project, along with paying for the labor. That saved the city about $400,000 in labor costs, allowing for all four streets to be repaired. Without the savings, only a couple would have received the work.
Colleyville has several projects of its own planned:
▪ Frontier Court: Possible start in fall.
▪ Manning Drive: Work could begin later this summer.
Improvements are also planned for John McCain Road, L.D. Lockett Road, Oak Timber Court, and Thompson Terrace. Work could begin as soon as this summer.
“Improving and maintaining roads and infrastructure is a key responsibility of local government, and a major priority of mine and the city council because that’s what citizens have asked us to do,” mayor Richard Newton Said. “I know it’s inconvenient for citizens as we rebuild roads, but all will be better off as projects are completed and roads improved.”
