Background and Discussion:

Installation of underground storm sewer, repair and replacement of concrete and asphalt pavement throughout the Kingslake Forest Subdivision for Harris County Precinct 1.

Expected Impact:

Reconstructing these roadways and installation of underground storm sewer will improve pavement conditions and drainage capacity, thereby improving mobility and safety for all road users and flood resiliency for all adjacent properties. This purchase order 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.
