North Allen Genoa Road Repairs Schedule 

Houston - The City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department (PWE) is scheduled to begin panel replacements along North Allen Genoa Road on Monday, October 16, 2017. The scope of work includes the removal and replacement of identified deteriorated existing pavement sections of roadway, damaged curb sections, and identified wheelchair ramps to conform with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Construction is anticipated to be completed by early Summer 2018.

Since being sworn into office, Council Member Martin has been contacted by the community about the condition of this road and has worked with the Public Works and Engineering Department on implementing long-term effective repairs. The goal of this effort is to preserve as well as to prolong the life of the road base while providing a smoother riding surface in addition to providing safety for pedestrians within our community. Although, construction activities behind closed areas may occur from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., construction equipment movement in the driving lanes will be limited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

During the project drivers should expect impeded traffic speed through the channelized areas. However, there will be access to businesses at all times. Temporary sidewalk closures are anticipated as the Public Works and Engineering Department will be modifying identified wheelchair ramps. To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures will be in place at all times. The District E office has also contacted the Houston Police Department's Eastside Division to ask that officers can monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed.

For more information on the upcoming repairs on North Allen Genoa Road, please contact the District E office at (832) 393-3008 or via email at
