Construction Scheduled for Reseda Drive Safe Sidewalk Project
 
Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin is pleased to announce, in an effort to provide increased pedestrian mobility as well as safety, Houston Public Works will be in the Clear Lake area to make repairs to an existing sidewalk on Reseda Drive between Diana Lane and Torry Pines Road. 

The repairs of this sidewalk became a priority for Council Member Martin after the Exploration Green Conservancy contacted the District E office regarding the uneven sidewalk panels on Reseda Drive that many students travel to Clear Lake City Elementary School. Additionally, the area has seen more foot traffic since the completion of Exploration Green Phase One. To address the safety hazards the sidewalk posed,  Council Member Martin was happy to allocate $51,600 from Council District Service Funds to make the necessary repairs. 

Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 15, and is expected to be completed before the start of the 2019 to 2020 school year, weather permitting.  Crews will operate between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one lane will remain open at all times.  As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flaggers and caution devices, like orange traffic control barriers, that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zone.

For more information, please contact Council Member Dave Martin's office at (832) 393-3008 or districte@houstontx.gov.
