There will be no meeting today (Tuesday, August 2) or Tuesday, August 9.
Status of Box Culvert on Bull Creek Road
The contractor has resumed installing the box culverts on Bull Creek Road. We may reach White Rock Drive sometime the week of August 8. The plans call for two 7 by 4 foot box culverts on Bull Creek Road up to White Horse Drive. It may take until middle or the end of September to reach White Horse Drive.
For installation of the box culvert, about 400 feet of Bull Creek Road is completely closed to traffic on a 24-hour basis. The progress depends on the amount of rock and the conflicting utility lines. The closure cannot be reopened at night for safety reasons.
Bull Creek Road, the block between Shoal Creek Boulevard and RM 2222
Construction on the new water main and water service lines is still a few weeks away. Once construction starts on the water line, it will probably take at least a month before the contractor can begin reconstructing the street. Before the end of the project, a final overlay will be applied to the pavement.
Intersection of Bull Creek Road and RM 2222
The contractor will be laying the box culvert across this intersection with an open cut excavation as originally planned. The work will take place on weekends. Discussions have resumed about whether to close the whole intersection or to leave one west bound lane open. Shutting down the whole intersection will cost less and require fewer weekends. The work has not been scheduled yet.
We anticipate that we will begin repaving the road next week or the following week. Watershed Protection field crews may start installing the rest of the storm drain system on Rickey, Carleen and Bullard this fall.

Greenbelt near Shoal Creek Boulevard and Bull Creek Road
The work in the greenbelt is almost complete. A hand-rail still needs to be installed.
