2016 Road Improvement Bond

On March 1, 2016, voters approved $9 million over a two-year period for the purpose of designing, constructing, repairing, preserving, rehabilitating, enhancing, and otherwise improving roads.

City engineers rate the condition of all roads in the City with an assessment of what work, if any, is needed. Based on this information, public input, the City's adopted Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan, Governing Body input, and the amount of available funds, a list of proposed projects to receive funding is developed.

Road Reconstruction :

Reconstruction is recommended for High Resort Boulevard. Reconstruction involves removing all existing asphalt to native raw dirt and building the section correctly based on roadway classification.
  • High Resort Boulevard was reconstructed from Broadmoor Boulevard to NM 528 .  The reconstruction work was completed in June 2017, with an estimated cost for this work being $6.5 million.  The actual cost was $4,323,300.

Mill and Inlay:

Mill and inlay is recommended for Sara Road. Mill and inlay is when approximately one to two inches of the existing asphalt is removed and replaced. This type of work adds approximately five (5) to ten (10) years longevity to the life of a road.
  • Sara Road was mill and inlaid from Southern Boulevard to NM 528 .  The mill and inlay work was completed in December 2016, with an estimated cost for this work being $2.3 million.  The actual cost was $934,188.
