Contract Modification No. 2 includes survey and design for approximately 2,950 linear feet of 8” water line along Parker Road from the intersection at Independence Parkway to Roundrock Trail, and also another 2,500 linear feet of 12” water line along Parker Road from the eastern side of the intersection at Custer Road to Country Place Drive (approximate location).
If this contract modification is not approved, it would cause continued deterioration of existing water line utilities causing increased maintenance costs in the future.
