City Project Manager : Steven Anderson, P.E. (sanderson@cityofmesquite.com)City Inspector : Lee Dunn (ldunn@cityofmesquite.com)
Project Description : Faithon P. Lucas Boulevard was approved for $12.86 million in the Dallas County Major Capital Improvement Program 7th Call for Projects, where the County participates in 50% of paving and drainage improvements ($6.43 million). A plan design had previously been completed by Dallas County in 2015, where the existing two-lane asphalt roadway was designed to a four-lane divided concrete section. An alignment study of the preliminary design plan will determine which aspects of the 2015 plan need to be updated. When the proposed layout in the study is approved an updated project design will be completed as soon as possible so that construction can start in conjunction with the Solterra development.
