Notification of Capital Improvement Plan
Construction Project in the 6800 block of Portwest Drive

In order to keep pace with the growing needs of the community, the City of Houston Department of Public Works and Engineering will be improving the lift station described below.

You may not see any activity by the contractor for several weeks after the construction time has begun. This is due to the contractor getting prepared to perform work which includes procurement of materials and equipment, setting up staging areas or working in other areas in the project. The work will take place within the confines of the plant and should not add to significant traffic congestion on Portwest Drive.
