El Dorado Boulevard Panel Replacement Repairs Schedule

Houston, TX - Council Member Dave Martin is pleased to announce upcoming repairs along El Dorado Boulevard. Houston Public Works (HPW) is scheduled to begin panel replacements along El Dorado Boulevard on Monday, June 4, 2018. The scope of work 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.  Construction is anticipated to be completed by late August 2018 , weather permitting.
 
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 closed at all times. 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.
 
For more information on the upcoming repairs on El Dorado Boulevard, please contact the District E office at (832) 393-3008 or via email at districte@houstontx.gov.
