Council Member Dave Martin Hosts South Shaver Road Ribbon Cutting  
Houston, TX -  Houston City Council Member Dave Martin invites the public to join him as he celebrates the grand opening of the newly reconstructed South Shaver Street during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m.  The event will take place at Cristo de Poder church located at 5300 South Shaver Street. 

In addition to Council Member Martin, representatives from the city's Public Works and Engineering Department as well as the Texas Department of Transportation will provide remarks about the project. 
The $13.5 million worth of improvements to the roadway include widening the road from four to six lanes with a raised median, curb and gutter drainage, sidewalks, street lighting and improved underground utilities. Storm water capacity improvements for a portion of Berry Bayou and the construction of a new detention pond were also included. 
"Since coming into office, I have pushed for the continued progress on the reconstruction of South Shaver Street," said Council Member Martin. "Southeast Houston residents have patiently waited decades for this project to be completed, and now that it is opened, will experience a more enjoyable drive with less congestion and improved mobility and drainage."
