Dallas-Fort Worth: An Impressive Aviation History

The city of Dallas has big plans ahead for The DFW International Airport. A project including renovations to the terminals, rehabilitations of the airfields, as well as several utility infrastructure upgrades is underway. The airport also plans to build a second end-around taxiway to help ease congestion, particularly during peak arrival and departure times during the day. The extensive improvement projects are expected to be ongoing- for up to ten years- until a full completion has been obtained. All told, the airport has approximately 360,000 linear feet of sewer pipelines and 760,000 linear feet of water lines which were built over forty years ago. Since the 1940’s, 70,000 airplanes have been built in North Texas. Their estimated economic impact, not including the infrastructure associated with them, has put $1 trillion into the local economy. One in five jobs in North Texas is aviation related-among the highest concentrations of aviation jobs in the United States- with 140,000 people working just at DFW International Airport. Sixty-three million passengers pass through Texas airports annually, with DFW alone generating $44 billion a year to the North Texas economy. Fun fact: Fort Worth Aviation Museum’s 26 warbirds span the time period from 1943 to the present. To be considered for the collection, an aircraft must meet one or more of the following collection policy criteria: The aircraft must have a relationship to aviation history in North Texas through manufacture or use. • The aircraft must be used for observation or Forward Air Controller. • The aircraft must have been utilized by Forward Air Controllers The Fort Worth Aviation Museum is a great place to learn more about the history of aeronautics! This unique museum includes exhibits and an air park of 24 airplanes. The museum hosts a celebration each year to commemorate the first powered airplane flight in Fort Worth’s...

Hewitt’s Long Term Capital Improvement Plan

Hewitt’s Long Term Capital Improvement Plan

Hewitt City Council is issuing more than $8.5 million in certificates of obligation for water and wastewater repairs that will require an increase to residents’ water and sewer rates. Without previous rate adjustments, the city was unable to put away funds for capital improvements, leaving major damage to the water and wastewater infrastructure.  About $3.8 million of that total is a required payment to the Waco Metropolitan Area Regional Sewerage System for its $42 million capital improvement project.  The city is a part of the regional system, a joint wastewater treatment effort among the cities of Bellmead, Hewitt, Lacy Lakeview, Lorena, Robinson, Waco and Woodway. The projects included have been on the city’s long-term capital improvements plan.  Proposed work includes about $150,000 to decommission the aging Dane Lift Station; about $1.7 million for Interstate 35 waterline improvements; $130,000 for a sewer line extension; $580,000 to replace the sewer line near Travis Lake and Oklahoma Avenue; $1.6 million to remove the aging Conventry Lift Station; and $650,000 to replace the Black Diamond Lift Station. Reminder Hewitt residents: On October 17th the Brush and Bulk collection site will be open to drop off large amounts of brush or large items like stumps, old chairs, etc. Each person will have to provide a current Hewitt water bill.
