DEER PARK, Texas – Commissioner Jack Morman and Deer Park Mayor Jerry Mouton Jr. announced the start of construction on Durant Avenue for Wednesday, July 5th. The $846,000 project will reconstruct the two-lane asphalt roadway to concrete from Spencer Highway to Coy Drive. 

Construction will require road closures; however, detour signs will be placed throughout the area. Residents will have access to their homes throughout the duration of construction. The project is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2017. 

This project comes shortly after the City and County began work on the reconstruction of Ivy Avenue from E 8th Street to just north of 1st Street. The $1.3 million project will reconstruct the 2-lane concrete roadway to include a sidewalk, on-street parallel parking, and storm sewer drainage. Construction is expected to be complete early fourth quarter of this year.
