The City Council today approved a 2 point 2 million dollar contract for design and construction for improvements along Chadbourne Street. The initial work will involve relocating utilities and is slated to be complete in September of 2020. The first of three phases, including streetscaping from the Concho River to Beauregard Avenue, should be completed in late 2022 at a cost of about 10 point 2 million. The second and third phases would stretch from Beauregard to 6th and from the river to Washington.
