The drainage and pavement replacement work on Lotus Street should be wrapping up next week, and the contractor

is ready to start on pavement and drainage replacement on Oleander Street from Hickory to Maple. The work is

scheduled to begin on Monday, July 6, 2020, with preparation of the work site with installation of traffic control

signage and temporary parking stalls for those displaced by the ongoing work.

Step 1 of Phase 10 will consist of demolition and replacing the pavement on the even-addressed side of the street.

The traffic through the 200 and 300 blocks of Oleander Street will be temporarily changed to a one-way travel from

East to West or from Plantation Drive toward Oak Drive. Once the pavement, sidewalks, and driveways on the even

side of the street are completed, the traffic travel will be flipped from West to East (Oak Drive to Plantation Drive),

and Step 2 work will shift to the odd numbered side. The drainage crossing between South Ya upon and Maple Street

will be Step 3 and the last section to be replaced. This work will create a temporary dead end on each side of the

drainage easement and road closure. We will notify you of the traffic direction changes as the work progresses.

We provided detailed information of the construction work at the public town meeting held on October 16, 2018 and

will provide the affected property owners or public in general with any information as needed through all our

available communication media or by direct phone call to the engineering department at (979) 415-2413.

Expect the periodic traffic disruptions and restricted access through the work zone. Please observe construction

zone regulations of the directional and speed limit signs being erected and being enforced by our police department.

Please make every effort to make plans to use the alternate routes to your destinations and exercise caution when

travelling thru the detours in your neighborhood.

Please relocate any parked vehicles or equipment not in daily use to alternate parking areas out of the work zone if

planning to use during the work period in your area, as well as planning for alternate daily parking spots in the

adjacent vicinity as possible, due to limited temporary parking stall space provided. We apologize for any

inconvenience these needed improvement changes may impose on you.
