The issuance of $154,000,000 of public securities for Street Improvements, and levying a tax in payment thereof.
If approved by the voters in the Nov. 5, 2019 election, Proposition A will allocate funding for constructing, reconstructing, or extending streets, roadways, sidewalks, storm drains, traffic control signals, street lighting, medians, and other related transportation infrastructure improvements, including the acquisition of land and easements for such purposes (see complete bond proposition language).
STREET REHAB PROGRAM
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide funding for the design and reconstruction of aging street infrastructure throughout the City. In addition to the street itself, curb and gutters, sidewalks, traffic signals, turn lanes, medians, and other components may be included in a street rehabilitation project.
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide funding for the construction of sidewalks.
Sidewalk infrastructure would be installed according to the City’s sidewalk prioritization plan. The plan seeks to close existing sidewalk gaps and install new sidewalks within one-quarter mile of schools within the City of Denton.
Installing or improving pedestrian routes to schools allows the City of Denton to pursue federal matching funds for sidewalk projects.

BONNIE BRAE STREET (V, VI, & VII)
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide city funding for Bonnie Brae Phases V, VI, and VII to widen approximately three miles of Bonnie Brae Street from Scripture Street to Loop 288 and build a continuous four lane divided road along this route.
The bond program would provide matching funds for Phases V, VI, and VII, which are parts of a larger reconstruction and widening project for Bonnie Brae. Phases I, II, III, and IV are either complete or currently underway and will widen the road from Vintage Boulevard to Scripture Street.
HICKORY CREEK ROAD
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide funding for the widening of approximately one mile of Hickory Creek Road from Riverpass Drive to FM 1830 (Country Club Road) to four lanes.
The project would include the realignment of Hickory Creek Road at the Hickory Creek crossing from its current curved configuration to a linear path that takes the road directly across the creek and associated flood plain.
This project is part of a larger reconstruction and widening project for Hickory Creek Road with the goal of a continuous four lane divided road along Hickory Creek Road from FM 2499 to FM 1830. The widening of Hickory Creek from Riverpass Drive to FM 2499 is currently under design and construction.
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide funding for the widening of approximately two miles of Ryan Road, from Teasley Lane to Country Club Road, from a two-lane road to a three-lane road.
The new configuration would include an 11-foot center turn lane so motorists may move out of travel lanes to decelerate or stop in anticipation of left hand turns.
The proposed 2019 bond program would provide funding for the design and construction of street lights along major thoroughfares that carry a significant amount of pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic, and where street lights could not be added during construction or reconstruction of the roadway project.
If approved, the City would prioritize street lighting projects with an emphasis on larger unlit or under lit thoroughfares.
