Martinville Drive Roadway Pavement Replacement Schedule

Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin would like to announce that repairs are s cheduled to begin along Martinville Drive on January 8, 2018 . The sc ope of work includes the replacement of existing pavement with new asphalt concrete pavement as well as ditch regrading.  Construction is anticipated to be completed by  early Spring 2019.
 
The City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department (PWE) is scheduled to start repairs in the northbound lane, between 2618 and 3000 Martinville Drive.  During construction, one lane will be closed. The open lane will accommodate two-way traffic with flagmen directing traffic between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. There will be one-way traffic between 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. with a detour affecting traffic. 
 
Since being sworn into office, Council Member Martin has been contacted by the community about the condition of this road and has worked with PWE to implement long-term effective repairs. The goal of this effort is to preserve as well as prolong the life of the road base while providing a smoother riding surface. 
 
During the project drivers should expect reduced traffic speed through the channelized areas. There will be access to driveways at all times during the project. To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures will be in place at all times. The District E office has contacted the Houston Police Department's Eastside Division to ask that officers can monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed.
