City Lights February

DeSoto City Lights February, 2019 A Publication of the City of DeSoto Community Relations Department Chattey Road Reconstruction Project The reconstrucƟon of ChaƩey Road is included in the City of DeSoto’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Currently, ChaƩey Road is a two‐lane asphalt roadway located within a residenƟal community. There is with heavy pedestrian school traffic along ChaƩey Road and there are no sidewalks. ChaƩey Road will be reconstructed from Pleasant Run Road to Belt Line Road and will include a 25 foot residenƟal concrete roadway with curb and guƩer, closed underground drainage, sidewalks, retaining walls, landscaping and lighƟng. The design phase of the proposed project is complete. The proposed horizontal alignment will have few changes. However, the new verƟcal alignment will improve sight distances when traveling along the street.

In order to accommodate the proposed construcƟon, addiƟonal street right‐of‐ way and easements were necessary. All needed right‐of‐way and easements have been acquired from private property owners. Before construcƟon, franchise uƟlity companies such as phone, cable, electric are being relocated outside of the proposed roadway surface and proposed infrastructure improvements. These relocaƟons are expected to be complete by January 2019. Bids for reconstrucƟon of ChaƩey Road were received in October, 2018 and construcƟon is expected to begin in February, 2019. Public meeƟngs will be held in the coming weeks designed to provide informaƟon about the actual construcƟon phase of the project and how it will affect the surrounding neighborhoods. Watch this
