Harris County Commissioner Gene L. Locke has announced plans to improve streets in several neighborhoods throughout Precinct One, including unincorporated areas that are in need of infrastructure improvements.
The announcement was made after Harris County Commissioners Court on Tuesday approved a measure that adds $1 million to an existing contract with a firm that will make concrete repairs on dozens of streets. The account previously contained $750,000, of which about $380,000 have been spent on repairs.
The latest list includes $909,154 for street repairs. Teamwork Construction Services Inc. will perform the repairs and replacement of concrete pavement, curbs, driveways, sidewalks and related infrastructure. In the east precinct, $702,754 will be spent for work on streets in communities such as Sterling Green, Sheldon Woods, Sonoma Ranch and Beaumont Place.
In the north precinct, $93,000 worth of work will be done on street in the Interstate 45 and Airtex area; the I-45 and East Richey area; the Kuykendahl and Ella area; and the North Lake Houston Parkway and Lockwood area.
In the south, $113,400 will be spent on roads in South Belt, Scarsdale and Friendswood areas.
Since taking office in January, Commissioner Locke has developed an aggressive plan to improve streets throughout Precinct One, both in unincorporated areas and inside Houston city limits located in the precinct.
