ReBuild Houston Project Underway in Districts D and K
Main Street Rehabilitation - North Braeswood to Montrose Boulevard
A $1.8 million project to repave Main Street from North Braeswood to Montrose Boulevard began in June with an expected mid to late August completion. The project consists of removing existing asphalt pavement and overlaying with new asphalt. Existing curbs and curb ramps will also be repaired or improved as part of the project. Phase One, Main Street from Mecom Fountain to North Braeswood, is currently under construction, Phase Two, from Mecom Fountain to Bissonnet Street, will begin once Phase One is completed.
Major construction occurs nightly between 8 pm and 5 am, Sunday through Thursday. At least one lane each direction will remain open during construction hours. Daytime motorists can expect intermittent, single lane closures, between 9 am and 4 pm to facilitate repairs to the curbs and curb ramps.
Prior to placing new asphalt, motorists will experience a rough ride from uneven street surfaces as the old pavement is milled and removed and base failures repaired. Motorists are advised to drive with care in this area during this time, and heed all traffic control protocols.
This project is funded through ReBuild Houston - the voter-approved pay-as-you-go plan to rebuild and maintain the City's aging drainage and street infrastructure, without incurring new debt. This project is an active example of how ReBuild Houston is providing better streets, better drainage and a better future.
