District G FY2015-2019 CIP
The following major thoroughfares were recommended for inclusion in the FY2015-2019 CIP via Rebuild Houston, and are reflected on the current DRAFT CIP. The 5 year CIP is approved by City Council as part of the budget process each June. The City’s new Fiscal Year (FY2015) begins on July 1, 2014.
CIP # N-100017—Gessner Street Paving and Drainage (Buffalo Bayou to Richmond). Project will widen the existing four lanes to six lanes, construct a bridge along Westheimer (grade separation), replace traffic signals and upgrade storm, water and wastewater lines as needed. Design is anticipated in FY2015, and Construction in FY2018.
CIP #N-100023--Dairy Ashford Paving and Drainage (I-10 to Buffalo Bayou). Project will widen the existing four lanes to six lanes, replaces traffic signals, and upgrade storm sewer and utilities as needed. Design is anticipated in FY2016, and Construction in FY2019.

Three additional projects were added to what ReBuild Houston calls “Inventory” (these are areas of high need that have been examined by the pre-engineering process, but did not qualify for funding this year. They are projects that will continue to compete for funding in the CIPs for succeeding years):
- Wilcrest (Buffalo Bayou to Westheimer) #2 in inventory
- Dairy Ashford (Buffalo Bayou to Westheimer) #3 in inventory
- Woodway (Chimney Rock to Memorial Dr.) #7 in inventory
