Road Repairs Coming in Iowa Park

A smoother ride is on the way for Iowa Park residents.

City councilors signed off on 12 street projects around town at Monday night's meeting.

"We have some streets that need to be resurfaced where the asphalt is in pretty good condition it just needs a new surface put on it," city manager, Jerry Flemming said. "We have others that we need to totally rebuild."

Flemming says two streets need complete asphalt rebuilds---Park Plaza and Justin Drive.

Tom Venhaus has lived on Justin Rd. for 13 years and is looking forward to crews heading his way.

"I drive it every day," Venhaus said. "It's not in really good shape."

"It's a little bit of everything. The leveling not that many potholes but the leveling that would be great. There's some places they may have repaired but hasn't been repaired really well, so it could use some updating."

Bill Garcia lives on busy Park Plaza.

The street gets a lot of wear and tear because it leads right to sealed air.

"I strongly feel that it does need to be repaired," Garcia said. "There are a lot of bad spots on the road."

Both Garcia and Venhaus applauded the council for seeing the roads that are in real need of repair. One thing that does concern Garcia though is the duration of the project.

"I'm afraid it's--I don't know how long it's going to take for them to do it," Garcia said.

"If we have a normal year, normal temperatures, normal weather, we'll be able to complete these projects easily," Flemming concludes.
