Public Works update highlights upcoming projects

Cleburne Public Works is gearing up for a variety of projects that will improve the city’s infrastructure.

City staff presented an update on upcoming projects to the City Council at its Aug. 10 meeting. The presentation included updates at streets projects, Transfer Station improvements, water utility construction, and more.

2021 Streets Program
This year’s streets program to improve 7 miles of roadway across 15 streets is on track to begin in August. Learn more

Transfer Station Improvements
Improvements at the Transfer Station are progressing to the final plans and bid process this fall. The project aims to improve service for Cleburne citizens, operations, and relieve the current backup of customers waiting to unload. The project includes adding a separate drop-off for small loads and changes to the larger load process and recycling areas.

 Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Project will increase plant capacity by 40-percent. Construction is expected to begin later this year with the construction process expected to take about 2.5 years to complete.

Water and Wastewater Utility Renewals
This project to renew more than 4,200 linear feet of waterlines, 4,200 linear feet of sewer mains, add 3 new fire hydrants, and 92 new sewer and water service lines, is scheduled to align with the upcoming streets construction. This project will take place along Starling Court, Wren Court, Madison Street, Odell Street, and Sabine Avenue. 

Master Thoroughfare Plan
City staff is finalizing the Master Thoroughfare Plan Update, which will provide a level-of-service analysis for roads and intersections, present intersection improvement opportunities, account for new development and current development trends, and develop a prioritized list of roadway network improvement projects. The plan is on schedule for a City Council presentation this fall.

Sparks Drive Project
The project to connect Sparks Drive to Chisholm Trail Parkway is in the funding process. Staff is working to acquire grant funding for this project, which will include a bridge over West Buffalo Creek connection the Chisolm Trail Parkway to Spark Drive to the east. 

Illuminated Street Name Signage
The City continues to enhance street signs to increase visibility and improve safety at all City-owned traffic signals. Last year, crews upgraded intersections along Nolan River. Staff is working to introduce the new signage at Colonial and Woodard and Colonial and Yellow Jacket. The City is also targeting the remaining City-owned signals at Granbury and Pointdexter, Granbury and Woodard, Ridgeway and Woodard, and Nolan River and Westhill. 

 West Reuse Pump Station and Pipeline
This project will expand the city’s raw water supply by adding a new pump station and pipeline to allow for an initial 2-million gallons of treated reuse water per day to be deposited back into Lake Pat Cleburne. The project is on pace to begin construction in mid-2022.

BNSF Utility Relocations Project
As BNSF plans to install an additional parallel track to the existing line, the City will relocate utilities that run underneath  the line. This construction is on pace for this fall.
