ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District C
The Morningside Overlay Project will improve road surface drivability in the area by removing old asphalt and replacing it with a new asphalt driving surface. This $300,000 rehabilitation project, which runs along Morningside from University to Holcombe, 77005, is anticipated to be complete by late March 2014.
Asphalt street overlay projects aid in extending the life of a roadway. First, a milling crew will remove the old asphalt surface. Once the old asphalt is removed, a second crew will come in with an asphalt paving machine and apply a new road surface between 1" to 2" thick. The Morningside Overlay Project provides for the resurfacing of Morningsidewith asphalt overlay, as well as repairs and improvements to curbs and accessible ramps.
The ReBuild Houston Initiative is the City of Houston's voter approved pay-as-you-go plan to rebuild drainage and street infrastructure. Its goal is to improve the quality of life and mobility for residents through the reconstruction and proper maintenance of drainage and street improvements. The Morningside Overlay Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
