FM 518 Waterline Replacement (I45 to Palomino Lane)


$2.73 million 

Scope of Work 

Provide construction services associated with the replacement of the existing 10-inch diameter waterline along the northwest side of FM 518, from I45 to Palomino Lane, with a new 12-inch diameter waterline. The total footage of waterline to be replaced is estimated to be approximately 8,356 linear feet of 12-inch water mains, plus 1,488 linear feet of branching lines, including cased waterline crossings of FM 518. A portion of this project is being expedited to mitigate future conflict with a TxDOT hike and bike trail and a drainage project that will impact already limited right-of-way.

Project Status as of May 2022

Six bids were received on May 4, 2022 (one disqualified for lack of schedule) and D.L.
