ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District A
Saums Road Asphalt Overlay Project
The Saums Road Asphalt Overlay Project will improve road surface drivability by replacing the existing asphalt with a new driving surface. This approximately $450,000 million project, which runs along Saums Road from Greenhouse Road to Barker Cypress Road, 77084, began in June 2015 and is anticipated to be complete in October 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 Saums Road 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 Saums Road Asphalt Overlay Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
