BUILD

HOUSTON

FORWARD

WE KEEP IT

MOVING.

EVERY DAY.

ReBuild Houston has a new name and renewed purpose. We are now Build Houston Forward, and, with an extreme focus on and adherence to our original charter, we are improving drainage systems and streets all across the city.

Following Harvey, the city committed to build forward, not build back the same way.

Houston is constantly growing and evolving. This robust, unwavering progress requires a permanent daily effort to sufficiently maintain and upgrade our infrastructure and ready us for the thriving future we are cultivating every day.

Now, more than ever, we must be at our strongest and most resilient as we BUILD HOUSTON FORWARD.

UP DEBT

In 2010 this program was approved because Houstonians wanted us to address drainage and improve road conditions responsibly. And we have. Old debt is being retired, while funding is freed up for future work.

TYPES OF PROJECTS

Learn about any and all the work we are doing around the city: what it is, what it will cost, and when it'll be done.

REPAIR
This is about mending and maintaining: patching potholes, mowing ditches, fixing traffic signals and more.
REHABILITATE
This work extends the life of existing infrastructure. We replace panels, regrade ditches and overhaul drainage areas.
RECONSTRUCT
Where needed we put in new streets, upgrade storm sewers and build new drainage systems.
