Posted November 29, 2018 09:10:03The asphalt driveway that once lined a driveway in a Houston neighborhood is a pile of metal and concrete that is getting replaced.
In October, an employee at the West Houston Home Improvement Company decided to do something that most people would never consider doing.
He was digging up a driveway, and the gravel from the asphalt would need to be removed.
The contractor did not have the equipment.
Instead, he asked for the help of a contractor that does asphalt removal.
After some work, the contractor removed about 50,000 cubic yards of asphalt and used a bucket to lift the remaining asphalt out.
The contractor told the homeowner that the contractor had worked for a while.
But that wasn’t the end of the story.
As the contractor started working on the driveway, the homeowner had to take care of the driveway’s drainage system.
His wife and son were able to install a new drainage system, but it was only to meet the contractor’s standards.
When the contractor was finished, the homeowners realized they had to do a lot more work to make the new drainage.
It was the last time the contractor would work on the home.
Houston-area residents were left with an empty driveway for many years.
And now, the asphalt road is being replaced.
The new driveway is being installed at the corner of Interstate 610 and Main Street.
This photo shows the new asphalt driveway being installed.
It is about 70 feet long.
On Tuesday, the Houston City Council voted to extend the city’s asphalt pavement removal mandate until 2021.
To understand why, let’s take a look at some facts.
Since the late 1980s, Houston has experienced more than $2 billion in asphalt pavement damage.
About a quarter of that amount was due to human error.
More than a third of the damage was caused by careless drivers who caused traffic accidents and damaged the sidewalks and other infrastructure along the way.
A fourth of the total amount of pavement damage was due a lack of enforcement of the rule.
Nearly half of the $2.4 billion in pavement damage has occurred in Houston since 1985.
Even though some roads are safer today because of the asphalt removal rule, it’s not enough to stop people from getting careless.
There are more than 100 violations that are cited every year for improper pavement removal.
In 2015, there were more than 5,500.
That’s more than one violation every two minutes.
For most people, the pavement removal rule will make their roads safer.
But for people who are just beginning to realize they have to fix their asphalt, it can be a life-saver.
According to the Houston-area Transportation Department, the city has about 10,000 miles of asphalt roads that are not properly maintained and could be repaired.
People can still pay to repair their roads.
If you can, you should.
You can find a lot of information about how to do your own asphalt removal on the City of Houston’s website, at houston.gov/city.
