ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District H
White Oak Overlay Project
The White Oak Asphalt Overlay Project will improve road surface drivability by replacing the existing asphalt with a new driving surface. This approximately $560,000 project, which runs along White Oak Drive from Studewood Street to Houston Avenue, 77009, began in March 2015 and should be completed in June.
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 White Oak 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 White Oak Drive Asphalt Overlay Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
