Background and Discussion:

The County engaged KIT Professionals, Inc. to study and design the project in 2019, and now seeks KIT Professionals, Inc. to assist and advise the County during project construction.
The goal of constructing Greenhouse Road 5 from south of Cornerstone Arbor Drive to south of Cypress North Houston Road is to complete the future northbound 2-lanes to complete a 4-lane concrete boulevard (i.e. the southbound 2-lanes are existing) and improve mobility in the area.
KIT Professionals, Inc. is qualified to perform these professional services. The firm is registered with the Harris County Engineering Department Professional Services Registry.


Expected Impact:

The project will address current and future traffic volumes, reduce delays, and provide safe mobility for residents, pedestrians and drivers.



Alternative Options:
If no action is taken, the project may experience delays in construction staking, review of submittals and RFI's as well as traffic control plans as required by the agreement.



Alignment with Goal(s):
? Justice and Safety
? Economic Opportunity
? Housing
? Public Health
