e-Update February 2011 Volume 3, Issue 2


From the City Manager

2011 will be the start of several large or significant projects that have been in the works for several years: Repsdorph Road Improvements - Harris County should approve the start of this project within the next 45 days. During the first phase of the project Repsdorph from Loch Lake to NASA Parkway will become a one-way southbound road. Once started, the project timeline estimate is 16-18 months. Lakeside Extension (City Project): This project is underway and will extend the current Lakeside Drive another 700 feet. The project should be completed within 90 days and will allow Lakeside Drive to be ready to tie into the Repsdorph project. Lower Pine Gully Improvement Project: This is a joint City and Port project that will be accomplished along with the Galveston Bay Foundation. This involves the removal of the silt currently in the lower region of Pine Gully as well as wetland improvements and a breakwater structure to prevent future silting in the area. The breakwater structure is a CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) project. This project is in final permit review by the Corps of Engineers. If all goes well and permit is issued, this project will be completed within the first six months of this year. (Continued next page)


Waterfront Drive Improvement: This is one of the CDBG and Economic Development Administration grant projects estimated at $6.5 million that is in final environmental review by the TDRA. We expect the environmental review to be complete within the next 45 days. Once complete, we should have permission to start the full project. We have already started the permit process with the Corps of Engineers along with a major portion of the final design. Generator Installation at Water Well Sites: This is a major CDBG grant project that is also in final environmental review and should be ready to start within 60 days. This will allow installation of a large generator at each of our three water well sites totaling $ 1.3 million. Street Rehabilitation Project: This is another CDBG project that will involve major street reconstruction to many of our City streets that were affected by the tidal surge or Hurricane Ike. We should now have clearance to start these projects within the next 90 days. This will involve $ 2.6 million in street rehabilitation. Heat and Air Conditioner City Hall Project: The installation part of this project is complete with the contractor now doing adjustments to make the unit work correctly. City Hall/Fire Station Energy Improvements: This is the $ 50,000 Energy Grant we’ve received and now have permission to start which will convert existing lighting to energy efficient lighting in City Hall and the Fire Station.
