Several road constructions, repairs and improvements are on the way as Plano together with its $4.7 million budget plans to fix the streets according to a Dallas Morning News article from
“Plano is planning a $4.7 million road improvement project that will lay down an “ultra-thin overlay” on Coit Road between Park Boulevard and State Highway 121 and on Plano Parkway between Park Boulevard and Preston Road, according to the city.
Before the overlay work, about 1,200 square yards of arterial street concrete will be repaired.
The project will be funded through the 2021-22 Community Investment Program for street improvements.”
The road fixing was made possible after the Plano city council gave the go signal to use the said funds according to a Community Impact article from June 1 which reports,
“City officials said repairing concrete pavement typically requires the entire section of road to be removed and replaced. By using the overlay, workers only need to repair and seal cracks in the concrete to maintain the road’s structural integrity before applying an ultra-thin layer of asphalt on top.
Officials said this method is a faster, more cost-effective way of repairing the city’s concrete roads. The overlay was first tested in 2017 on Independence Parkway from Parker Road to West 15th Street, city staff said. The lasting condition of the road and feedback from Plano residents prompted officials to move forward with more overlay projects, officials said.”
Despite the go signal, there is no official timeline as to when the repair and improvements will be made.
