The City of Clifton has been hard at work again on improving local streets. Along Mary Street, an overgrown area was cleared and levelled prior to new curbing. Mary will be completely resurfaced from North Avenue Q to State Highway 6, including base material as needed. The estimated project cost is $589,000 with an anticipated completion date of June 15, 2022.
Additionally, curbing and ribbon curbing has been added along a section of South Avenue Q. The improvements to Mary Street and Avenue Q will help prolong the street life by protecting the surface from the effects of aging, cracking, deterioration, and water infiltration.
On March 8, 2022, Clifton City Council voted to approve three infrastructure projects funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The City will replace a 2” water main on Avenue A with a 6” water main to comply with Texas Commission on Environmental Quality standards. The City will prepare an Emergency Preparedness Plan, which will be shared with the Heart of Texas Council of Governments. The City’s plan will aid regional staff and committees to better assess the needs and priorities for funding of the rural communities in the region. Council also approved repairs to a drainage system on North Avenue H near West 5th Street (FM 219).
The City of Clifton has applied for State Homeland Security Program funding for additional security measures at critical infrastructure sites. Determination of funding will be announced in the Fall of 2022.
