HARKER HEIGHTS — Council members took a virtual tour of $11.5 million worth of capital improvement projects during a workshop meeting Tuesday.

City Manager David Mitchell brought council members up to speed on the nine projects that are either currently under construction or in various stages of engineering.

“City staff is satisfied with the progress being made, and we just wanted to ensure council understood the scope of the projects as we move forward,” Mitchell said.

Mark Hyde, director of Public Works, passed out a map of “bus stops” to allow council members to follow along as they were taken on the tour of the various projects.

Hyde said that water and sewer projects along Farm-to-Market 2410 are underway, and projects on Cedar Oaks, Farm-to-Market 3481, Cedar Knob Road and Warrior’s Path are in the early stages of engineering.

Plans on Amy Lane and Pecan Drive also are in the early stages of development.

As far as reconstructing Comanche Gap Road goes, Hyde said staff expects to review plans by the end of the month and believes the contract will be awarded around Thanksgiving.
