ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District C:
Montrose & Midtown Area Drainage and Paving

The Montrose & Midtown Area Drainage and Paving Project will provide improvements to address drainage and road safety in the area. This approximately $8.94 million project began in March 2014 and is anticipated to be complete in July 2015.

Traffic control devices will be set up today, February 13, 2015. The east bound lanes of W. Dallas will be closed between Bailey and Genesee and two-way traffic will be diverted to the west bound lanes through the end of April 2015. Gillette Street will continue to have one-way traffic (south bound) from Allen Parkway to W. Dallas until the street reconstruction is complete at the end of March. The work zone will be confined to the north side of W. Dallas to install the 10x10 storm boxes. Allen Parkway will remain open during this phase.

This project consists of construction of a 10x10 pre-cast storm sewer trunk and storm sewer relief outfall starting at Buffalo Bayou and within the street rights-of-way of Gillette from Allen Parkway to W. Dallas and on W. Dallas from Gillette to Genesee and on Genesee from W. Dallas to the end of the project. The project also includes replacing pavement, water and sanitary sewer utilities, driveways and sidewalks affected by the construction.

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 quality of life and mobility for residents through the reconstruction and proper maintenance of drainage and street improvements. The Montrose & Midtown Area Drainage and Paving Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
