The City 2007 Bond CIP project required the street and drainage reconstruction of approximately 3850 LF of Houston Street, a Secondary Arterial Thoroughfare in a Commercial/Industrial business district, starting at the intersection of AT&T Center Parkway East and ending at IH-10.
The reconstruction included engineering design for street section widening and pavement section improvements that added 12 ft and 14 ft wide lanes, curbing, and 6-foot sidewalks on both sides of the street. Property acquisition was also needed to meet the required street ROW width.
The project also included design for a new underground storm sewer system with conveyance infrastructure ranging from 24-inch RCP to 7x7 box culverts, including approximately 20 inlets along the street storm drainage route.
Transportation improvements consisted of design for new signalization at the intersection of Houston Street and a cross-street secondary arterial thoroughfare, with signalized reversible lanes, signage/pavement markings, and ADA access.
