Houston Public Works began a street rehabilitation project Tuesday, Sept. 7, starting on Forest Way.
The scope of work includes rehabbing the concrete streets of Forest Way, Royal Forest Drive, Rockmead Drive, Stonehollow Drive, Green Oak Drive and Chestnut Ridge Road north of Kingwood Drive.
The cost of the project is $920,000 and is funded through the Dedicated Drainage and Street Renewal Fund. The project is a product of Houston Mayor Turner’s Street Rehab Initiative that was launched in September 2020. The initiative will focus on extending the life of existing infrastructure by rehabilitating street surfaces, fixing curbs, storm drains and bringing ramps up to accessibility standards.
Crews were mobilized on-site beginning Tuesday, Sept. 7 and the project is anticipated to be completed by Wednesday, Dec. 29, weather permitting. Construction activities are expected to take place Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
As a result of the construction activities, be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones that will be put in place on-site to help with traffic flow through the construction zone as the project may require a one-lane closure. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Businesses and residents will have access to driveways and sidewalks at all times and may experience an increase in noise levels due to trucks and equipment in the area.
