The improvements to Holzwarth Road included the preliminary and design phase services for the construction of a new, four-lane roadway with open ditches. The project scope included a traffic operations analysis, right-of-way determination, paving, drainage, appropriate transitions, signalization and storm water detention facilities.

Aside from general project management, Sander Engineering Corporation (“SEC”) was responsible for project alignment, preparation of the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan and Storm Water Quality Management Plan, and the analysis of the existing and proposed drainage and detention system to provide zero impact. SEC was also responsible for coordination of alignment surveying, including abstracting, metes and bounds descriptions for parcel takings, parcel staking; geotechnical investigation and environmental assessments; and coordination with TxDOT for the reconstruction of the traffic signals on Holzwarth at FM2920 and Spring-Cypress Road. The project length was approximately 0.75 miles and the new roadway was opened in January 2013.
