Background and Discussion:
Construction of underground utilities and ditches in the Eastex Freeway Forest Subdivision Sec. 3 and 4.

Expected Impact:

Constructing underground utilities and drainage ditches will improve drainage, thereby improving mobility and safety for all road users and flood resiliency for all adjacent properties. This agreement will allow the firm to conduct field and laboratory testing on soil, concrete, asphalt and various other construction materials. This testing will ensure the material's compliance with Harris County Engineering and other governing bodies specifications as required by state law.

Alternative Options:

Construction materials testing is required by state law. Thus, alternatives include executing an agreement for similar services to a different vendor or cancelling this construction project.

Alignment with Goal(s):
_ Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
_ Housing
_ Public Health
X Transportation
_ Flooding
_ Environment
_ Governance and Customer Service
