Arden Oaks Street Improvements
The 2021–2025 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) identifies proposed street and utility improvements within the Arden Oaks area for 2022. The proposed area consists of Arden Oaks Drive and Arden Oaks Court, which includes approximately 40 single family homes and is generally referred to as the Arden Oaks Neighborhood.
Residential development of Arden Oaks began in 1982, with the earliest homes shown to be built in 1983. Along with the development, public utilities were constructed for sanitary sewer and water main. Through City pavement management records, the latest structural project type for the street was a mill and overlay constructed in 1996. Non-structural projects were seal coating in 2000, another seal coat in 2012, and routine pot hole and patching maintenance to present. The typical life cycle of a road since a structural type project is 20–25 years, which puts this area in the category for pavement rehabilitation.
Project Status to Date
September 22: Final paving took place on Wednesday, 9/7. Warranty and punchlist inspection will be taking place periodically.
September 6: Crews currently have final paving scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, 9/7.
August 31: Crews have completed restoring yards with topsoil and seed and raising water/sewer castings.
August 22: The first lift of bituminous installation is complete. Crews are currently restoring yards with topsoil and seed and raising water/sewer castings. They currently are on track to have final paving completed by the end of the month.
July 27: Construction began within the Arden Oaks neighborhood with saw cutting concrete curb that is to be replaced. ASTECH also is scheduled to begin the reclamation of the street pavement today. By contract, once the surface has been reclaimed, the contractor must pave the first course of pavement within 21 days.
June 28: The preconstruction meeting took place today with the City, the Contractor (Astech), and the project Engineer (TKDA). Construction work will likely start in mid-July and be completed in early fall, depending on weather or other unforeseen factors. More updates to come as we get closer to start up.
It would be appreciated if residents would locate their irrigation heads and invisible dog fences with flags prior to construction. This will help crews avoid them in the field during construction and hopefully avoid the inconvenience of them damaging them during the activities.”
June 22: The engineering consultant, TKDA, has begun the permitting process for the project. We are currently scheduling a preconstruction meeting with the contractor ASTECH for June 28. In that meeting, the contractor will share their detailed schedule for construction. That schedule will be communicated to residents within the project corridor via newsletter and updates on the project webpage.
On March 21, 2022, the City Council declared the costs to be assessed and ordered the Assessment Hearing scheduled for April 25, 2022. The Hearing will be held in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Once the assessment rate is approved, the construction contract will be awarded to ASTECH Corporation. Construction is scheduled for 2022, with more details forthcoming. A detailed schedule will be sent to the affected residents and posted on the project webpage after the preconstruction meeting with the contractor.
