​12/16/2015 Update

Crews from Michels Corporation, an authorized CenterPoint Energy contractor, will finish construction within the scope of the 12th Avenue S. to Cedar Avenue S. construction project this week.

We understand that the 12th Avenue S. to Cedar Avenue S. construction project was an inconvenience to people living, working and commuting in and around the area, so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to complete all possible restoration in the 2015 construction season.
