FY17 Forest Hills #8 Alley Reconstruction

Drainage improvements and alley reconstruction of the Forest Hills Installment No. 8 alley between Flamingo Way and Granada Drive (from North Alexander Avenue to South Cockrell Hill Road) are under design.  This subdivision was built approximately 45 years ago.  The condition of the existing alley pavement is beyond normal repair methods and requires full replacement with a more durable reinforced concrete pavement to better withstand loads from trash trucks. The drainage system is being evaluated to determine if there is capacity for a 100-year storm event per the Drainage Design Manual. The opinion of probable construction cost for this reconstruction is $447,000.00, but this estimate could change depending on the extent of the engineering analysis of the drainage system. Construction is scheduled for summer 2018.

FY17 Water Utility Improvements

Water line improvements are being constructed on West Vinyard Road, West Daniel Street and West Nance Street (from Main Street to Avenue C). These service lines were built in the 1940s, making them approximately 75 years old. The work consists of the abandonment of 130 linear feet of 2-inch water line on West Vinyard Road and the reconnection of two services to an existing 8-inch line; installation of 400 linear feet of 8-inch C-900 PVC line on West Daniel Street from Main Street to Avenue C; and replacement of 270 linear feet of 2-inch water line with an 8-inch C-900 PVC line on West Nance Street from Main Street to Avenue C to connect to an existing 8-inch stub-out. These service lines were built in the 1940s, making them approximately 75 years old. The project was awarded to La Banda in November 2017 at a construction cost of $186,831.25. The project is scheduled for summer 2018 completion.

City of Duncanville Wastewater System Smoke Testing

The City of Duncanville has contracted with BURGESS & NIPLE of Austin, Texas, to perform a Smoke Test Survey in portions of Duncanville’s wastewater system. This survey involves the opening and inspecting of manholes and sewer lines, which are primarily located in backyard easements, but may be located in streets. An important task of the survey will be the smoke testing of the sewer lines to locate breaks and defects in the sewer system.
