[ARCHIVED] The City Wide Street & Drainage Improvement Project Continues

Citywide Streets and Drainage

Starting Monday May 16, Geotest Engineering Inc. will be performing geotechnical work along property between the railroad easement and CenterPoint easement between Bellaire Blvd and Brays Bayou.  The work involves gathering soil samples as part of the on-going work involved in the preliminary engineering for the proposed Westside drainage improvements.  This portion of work will not affect West U residents.

Once this work is completed, the crews will move north to gather additional soil samples between the railroad easement and rear property/fence lines along Community Drive between Bissonnet and Bellaire Blvd.  The contractor will not require access to rear yards unless absolutely necessary, in which case individual property owners will be notified ahead of time.  This work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, May 20.

It will be necessary to clear vegetation ahead of Monday’s work along the rear property/fence lines along Community.  Crews will be out starting Friday May 13 to complete the clearing needed.   Crews have been advised to exercise discretion near private properties to avoid unnecessary damage.

For any questions regarding the geotechnical work please contact Capital Projects Manager Eduardo Barreto at 713-662-5848 or at
