WHY:             “With the explosive growth in North Laredo, particularly along Shiloh, the City of Laredo was patient in finding funding through bonds and other such monies to help make this dream a reality for the benefit of not only the residents in the area, but also, the businesses and other travelers of Shiloh who would benefit from the connection of Shiloh Drive from IH-35 to Loop 20,” said Cm. Belmares, in whose district the road traverses.

The Shiloh Drive Extension Project consisted of constructing 1,200 linear feet of a 49 foot back-to-back roadway, from where it had ended at the Shiloh Subdivision up to Loop 20. The project included rough grading, preparing sub-grade and installing asphalt and sidewalks. The project also included constructing a drainage structure at the creek crossing, as well as placing water lines and sewer lines along the length of the road and a signal light at Loop 20 and Shiloh Drive.

The project construction cost was $1,266,209 with a contract time of 180 days.  The consultant for the project was Sherfey Engineering while the contractor was Martinez Paving Company.

This project is funded by 2006 and 2007 Certificate of Obligation bonds and 2008 Utility Certificate of Obligation bonds.
