In order to keep pace with the growing needs of the community, the City of Houston, through the Department of Public Works and Engineering, will be improving the storm sewers in the area described below. The contractor for this project is BRH Garver Construction, L.P. and work will start on April 28, 2009 and is scheduled to end on August 21, 2010.  You may not see any activity by the contractor for several weeks after the construction time has begun.

Project Description:

The project consists of the design of a single 14-foot X 12-foot reinforced concrete box storm sewer from 100 feet south of Robinhood to Quenby. From Quenby, a single 10-foot by 10-foot reinforced concrete box storm sewer will proceed north along Kirby and connect to an existing 11-foot by 7.5-foot reinforced concrete box storm sewer at Albans Ave. The storm sewer tie-in consists of a single 10-foot by 10-foot reinforced concrete box storm sewer which travels east along Quenby to Morningside Dr. where it transitions to a 10-foot by 6.5-foot reinforced concrete box storm sewer and continues on to the connection at Greenbriar. The storm sewer improvements will also include associated inlets, inlet leads, and laterals. The roadway pavement will be designed for reconstruction as full width concrete with curb and gutter. The pavement from 100-ft. south of Robinhood to Bissonnet will be a four-lane undivided section with continuous left-turn lane.
