Kirby Drive Reconstruction

LOCATION Houston, TX
Construction Engineering and Inspection

Located minutes from downtown and Memorial Park, the Upper Kirby District sits amidst some of Houston’s most historic and established neighborhoods. The area offers high-end commercial retail, access to fine art and popular eateries, though it warrants much needed improvements.
Jones|Carter worked with the local TRIZ, the Upper Kirby Management District and the City of Houston to address drainage and mobility issues in the area. Our portion of the project involved reconstructing the roadways from Richmond Avenue to Highway 59 into three lanes in both directions. We also added new curbed medians and left turn bays and realigned sidewalks. In addition, the Hydrology and Hydraulics team at J|C upsized the area’s storm sewer laterals and storm sewer system.
