ReBuild Houston Project Completed in District B
Bridge Reconstruction Project at Velma Lane

The Bridge Reconstruction Project at Velma Lane improved the overall road surface and safety of the bridge. This approximately $288,000 project, located at the 6000 block of Velma Lane near Kurt Drive, 77396, began in May 2014 and was completed in July 2014.

The Bridge Reconstruction Project at Velma Lane included the replacement of the existing timber bridge with a double barrel concrete culvert bridge. A concrete culvert bridge has a life expectancy of 50 plus years; as compared to a timber bridge which has a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years.

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 Bridge Reconstruction Project at Velma Lane is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
