Raising the bar of quality of life by improving Houston streets
HOUSTON – A plan that would go beyond just repairing potholes and extending the life of streets and making them last longer, that is Houston Mayor Silvester Turner’s goal. His new Street Rehabilitation program is designed to improve nearly 300 miles of Houston roadways by the end of this year, with a goal of eventually touching 100% of Houston streets in the time to come. Everyone who travels on City of Houston streets, whether they are driving, walking or biking should do so in a safe and equitable manner, according to Mayor Turner. -Public Works will conduct their research, analyzing streets in all 11 districts and will determine the condition and rideability. -they’ll be fixing street surfaces, fixing curbs, storm drains, sidewalks, and making ramps more accessible.
