DELAYED: El Dorado Boulevard Panel Replacement Repairs Schedule

Houston, TX - Council Member Dave Martin would like to notify residents the upcoming repairs along El Dorado Boulevard have been delayed. After hearing concerns from the community regarding school traffic, Council Member Martin requested Houston Public Works delay the project until summer break. The project is now scheduled to begin June 2018. 

The scope of work along El Dorado Boulevard includes the removal and replacement of identified deteriorated pavement sections of the existing roadway along El Dorado Boulevard, from El Camino Real to Torry Pines Road.  The goal of this effort is to preserve as well as to prolong the life of the road base while providing a smoother riding surface. 

Although, construction activities behind closed areas may occur from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., construction equipment movement in the driving lanes will be limited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m One lane will be permanently closed at all times to allow for the excavation, base placement, forming, concrete pour and to allow concrete to achieve required strength. HPW crews will begin work at El Camino Real and continue Torry Pines Road. 

During the project, drivers should expect reduced speed through the channelized areas.  To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures will be in place at all times. The District E office has also contacted the Houston Police Department's Clear Lake Substation to ask that officers monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed. A reminder notification regarding this project will be sent out as the new construction date approaches.
