Overlay of Richmond Ave Begins Monday

On Monday, February 18th, the Public Works Department will begin a project to rehabilitate two major segments of Richmond Ave. From Main St to Kirby Dr in District C, and from the 610 Loop to Hillcroft St in District G, Richmond Ave will receive a 1-inch overlay to smooth out the pavement surface, as well as curb and sidewalk repairs.

Richmond Ave has long been discussed as the possible future University Line in METRO’s light rail network. In 2013, Mayor Pro Tem Cohen supported the reclassification of Richmond as a Transit Corridor on the Major Thoroughfare and Freeway Plan, which allows the City of Houston and METRO to plan for transit-oriented development and for a multi-modal transportation system along the corridor.

This rehabilitation project will provide temporary interim relief for residents until a total reconstruction with the introduction of light rail is confirmed. Construction is expected to be complete in late fall 2019.
