Upper Kirby Construction: Westheimer Utility Work to Begin This Month (more info)

Westheimer Paving, Drainage and  Streetscape Improvements Project:
 
Project signs have been placed indicating work would begin this week on the utility portion of the Westheimer Drainage and Streetscape Improvement Project. Unfortunately work has was not able to begin as expected as the project has met with complications in permitting at the City of Houston. Minor changes to materials detail requested by the City and more extensive bonding to assure the City that the roadway will be replaced following utility work is the reason for the delay. It appears that all concerns have been addressed at this point and we anticipate permits will be issued next week. This, now a several week delay, is not anticipated to impact the contractor's ability to complete the four month project prior to the 2013 holiday season. Please look for further updates next week as sequencing details are finalized.
