The Public Works Department begins this year’s mill and overlay project to improve six miles of city roads across Cleburne at the end of March.
The project begins the week of March 25 on Prairie Street from Featherston to Country Club. In this construction, crews will remove the top layer of pavement and replace it with a new driving surface. The project is scheduled in phases with each phase lasting a couple of weeks to complete weather permitting.
In early April, the contractor plans to begin work on Berkley Drive from Westhill to Hemphill, South Colonial Drive from Henderson to Highway 4, North Ridgeway Drive from Henderson to Woodard, and Woodard Avenue from Gatrix to Ridgeway. This project also includes portions of West Industrial Boulevard, North Anglin Street, Chase Avenue, South Washington Street, Granbury Street, and Yellow Jacket Drive. This project's phase schedule may change because of its size. The City will provide updates as the project progresses.
The City does not plan to close roadways during construction, but motorists can expect changes in traffic due to construction including the use of on-site flaggers.
This $4 million dollar paving contract work is part of a continued investment from City Council to maintain and improve Cleburne’s infrastructure. This project will result in approximate 6.2 miles of repaved roadways. This project is in addition to the 3.3 miles of roadway that was already resurfaced this past November. Last year’s $1.49 Million dollar Roadway Reconstruction Project was just recently completed as well.
