In July 2013, the City of Houston Public Works and Engineering Dept. (PWE) began a primarily micro-tunnel project within the Fort Bend Houston area of the Ridgemont and Green Valley Estates subdivisions along Castlecreek Ln., Court Rd., Hiram Clarke Rd., Rapidcreek Dr., Ridge Harbor Dr., and Amy Ridge Rd. The contractor did not start immediately upon receipt of the Notice to Proceed; to recover lost ground, the contractor will add an additional micro-tunneling crew to ensure an on-time finish of the work.
In preparation for this infrastructure project, the Fort Bend Houston SNC, in partnership with Council Member Green, hosted an informational meeting at the Ridgemont Community Center where representatives from the affected communities were invited to engage the PWE project manager and the project contractor to ask questions about this infrastructure project.
“The District K office will continue to monitor the progress of this project and communicate with the community leaders of Ridgemont and Green Valley Estates,” states Council Member Green.
