During its Dec. 4 meeting, Missouri City Council Council unanimously approved authorizing the city manager to execute a contract with Brooks Concrete Inc. for $5.49 million in sidewalk and street repair services.

Zooming in

According to a presentation by Joi Johnson, the assistant public works director over streets, drainage and traffic operations maintenance, the $5.49 million in street and sidewalk repairs includes:

  • Public works streets: $4 million
  • Public works sidewalks: $800,000
  • Parks sidewalks: $700,000

Funding sources for the contract include the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, the city’s general fund and the capital improvement program, Johnson said in her presentation.

What else?

When it comes to the sidewalk repairs, Johnson said the repair locations were identified by factors such as trip hazards, safety, ponding, Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and the vicinity to schools.

Five parks will undergo sidewalk rehabilitation, Johnson said. Those parks include:

  • Bicentennial Park
  • East Hampton Parkland
  • American Legion Park
  • Community Park
  • Ridgeview Park

Stay tuned

The sidewalk and street repairs are set to begin citywide in January, according to Johnson’s presentation. Johnson said all the repairs are estimated to be completed within one year, which is the term of the contract with Brooks Concrete Inc.
