WACO, Texas (KWTX) The 2019 Mill and Overlay project has been green lit to start work soon.

Waco City Council approved a $4 million contract to Texas Materials Group Inc. for the work in several neighborhoods around the city.

This is all part of the Better Streets in Waco Project.

"It touches on about 20 roadway segments in the Waco city limits," says the city of Waco Capital Improvement Program Manager Jim Reed.

The project includes work from Chapel Rd all the way to Mahalia Drive.

Reed says the city chose the streets based on public outcry.

"A lot of what we do as far as identifying which project should become first, second, or third is based on community input," says Reed.

Reed expects the project to start in mid-July and finish by October.

He also added that there will not be any road closures and that the work will not affect the community.
