ReBuild Houston Project Notification
The ReBuild Houston Initiative is the City of Houston's voter-initiated plan to rebuild drainage and street infrastructure. ReBuild Houston will help improve quality of life and mobility for residents through the reconstruction and proper maintenance of drainage and street improvements.
The Galleon Drive Concrete Panel Replacement Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you. The Galleon Drive Concrete Panel Replacement Project (Council District J), will improve streets in the area by repairing the existing deteriorating roadway. The project began in January 2013 and is being performed in the 7331 block of Galleon, just west of Fondren Road, in the Sharpstown Country Club Terrace Subdivision. The projected completion date is January 28, 2013. The desired outcome is to improve the driving surface in this area.
Concrete panel repairs are an option used on concrete streets and involve completely removing a section of old concrete, then replacing with new concrete. This is the most expensive repair method and is used only where concrete material is absolutely necessary. Even small concrete repairs can take up to a week to complete. Asphalt can also be used to make a wide variety of repairs on concrete streets with excellent results. Asphalt repairs cost approximately five percent less of what a concrete repair would cost.
