The Roadway Reconstruction Project is designed to restore and enhance roads and drainage so that safety, infrastructure and water quality are maintained.

A little more than 8 miles of roads will be repaired, nearly 4 miles of water lines will be laid and drainage systems will be reconstructed. For a map of the project, click here.

Funding for the road work is provided by Road Reconstruction Bonds approved by city residents in November 2014. Water line work is being funded through the City Enterprise Fund.

Over the course of several years, problems with deteriorating streets in Fair Oaks Ranch became evident.

So in 2010, the city commissioned a road study to determine where streets had degraded and the nature of the deterioration.

As part of the pavement study, a recommendation was made that all streets be surveyed every five years. The five-year cycle helps the city develop a prioritization schedule for the necessary repairs.

Around the time of the 2010 road study, localized drainage issues also became apparent. Erosion and drainage structure deterioration hampered efficient flow of storm water runoff.

In November 2014, voters approved a bond proposal providing $7 million for roadway and drainage improvements. Also included in the Roadway Reconstruction Project are water line improvements. The extension and expansion of water lines are being funded through the City of Fair Oaks Ranch Enterprise Fund.
