Park and Street Projects of Summer 2022
- July 14, 2022
Local street and park improvements continued into late June as City employees and contractors completed projects on Mary Street, South Avenue Q, and in City Park. Along Mary Street, overgrown areas were cleared and levelled prior to new curbing and ribbon curbing. Base material was added, and the foundation prepared for a complete resurfacing of the street with asphalt. The project extended from North Avenue Q to State Highway 6. Additionally, curbing and ribbon curbing were added along a section of South Avenue Q. The site foundation was prepared before the avenue was resurfaced. The combined projects involved 2,004 tons of asphalt and were completed at an approximate cost of $638,000. The modifications will help prolong the street life by protecting the surface from the effects of aging, cracking, deterioration, and water infiltration.
In City Park, six hundred feet of overgrowth was cleared along the banks of the Bosque River in the Pecan Bottoms, allowing for easier, safer access to the waterfront. City workers mowed the grounds and painted flagpoles and structures in preparation for park events.
Fireworks on the Bosque, hosted by the City of Clifton and the City of Clifton Event Committee, drew thousands to City Park in celebration of Independence Day. Thank you to the sponsors who made possible the evening of music and incredible fireworks! And thank you to everyone who came out and made the event a fantastic success!
