The city of Houston sent out a notice to proceed to contractors the week of Aug. 3, with seven phases of construction planned between summer 2020 and winter 2021. Improvements in storm drainage, along with new concrete streets, curbs, sidewalks, driveways, streetlights, and water and wastewater lines are included as part of the plan, according to plans on the city’s website.
Work on Lakeland Drive and Bassoon Drive kicks off construction in this summer, with final work on Linkwood Drive set to finish in the winter of 2021.
The estimated project cost is $11.6 million, with funding coming from the city’s drainage fee and the combined utility service.
The Woodshire neighborhood also saw work from fall 2017 and summer 2019, when the city of Houston updated stormwater drainage, utilities and pavement infrastructure from Glenshire Drive to Breakwood Drive and Fordshire Drive to Bassoon at a cost of $14.11 million.
