City officials look to make substantial progress with current and new capital projects in 2013 while formulating a long-range transportation plans


Director of Public Works Manny Palacios said his department will be looking at the results of the pavement management plan, which council members approved last month. The city hired an outside firm to conduct a survey of all the city’s streets, which is expected to begin in February and last about two weeks, Palacios said.

Once the survey is complete, city officials will have a better idea as to what shape its roads are in and be able to devise a plan to fix them.

A number of street rehabilitation projects are on the books for 2013 including South Rusk Street between Eureka and Lee, South Alamo Street between Russell and Josephine and Merrimac Drive between Spring and Vine.
