ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District B
Mesa Drive Asphalt Overlay Project
The Mesa Drive Asphalt Overlay Project will improve road surface drivability by replacing the existing asphalt with a new driving surface. This approximately $1.7 million project, which runs along Mesa Drive from Liberty Road to N. Green River Drive, 77028, began in December 2014 and is scheduled for completion in April 2015.
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. This project provides for the resurfacing of Mesa Drive with 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 Mesa Drive Asphalt Overlay Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
