6400 Block of Community to Undergo Emergency Repair

October 17, 2012

West U residents who live in the 6400 block of Community can expect road work on their street within the next 10 days or so.

There is a void under a large portion of the street pavement following the ribbon cut in the center of the street paving. It will take four weeks to resolve the problem, but residents will have access to their driveways, Assistant City Manager and Public Works Director Chris Peifer said.

The city discovered the issue after receiving a call from a resident who was concerned about the condition of the street.

An inspection by the city’s engineer found that the street pavement throughout the entire block needed to be replaced.

Peifer said the drought contributed to the street problem and city staff is keeping their eye on other streets with similar issues.

The West U City Council approved the $84,697 project on Monday night.
