A three-month project to improve El Dorado Boulevard’s road surface is on the cusp of completion, with the road now open to motorists.

The gist

At the end of August, workers began replacing concrete panels along El Dorado between Torry Pines Road and Seahorse Drive in Clear Lake.

Several panels had deteriorated and needed to be replaced to improve road quality, said Jessica Beemer—chief of staff for Dave Martin, Houston City Council District E member—in an email.

The project costs $880,000. The work is expected to wrap up at the end of November, weather permitting, she said.

The details

During the work, there are one-lane closures along El Dorado to allow for the panel replacements.

Crews typically work on the road 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Some work occurs on weekends as well, according to a District E news release.

“Concrete panels are sections of concrete separated by a seam,” Beemer said. “Concrete panels can vary in size. They are not different from other road surfaces made of concrete.
