​​NRG StadiumHARRIS COUNTY – Harris County Commissioners Court received an update at a June 27, 2017 meeting on the capital improvement projects the county will be keeping tabs on for the 2017–18 fiscal year.

Harris Health System is in the middle of a $70 million expansion project at Ben Taub Hospital that will increase the number of operating rooms from 11 to 18.

With projections indicating that more than 500 semi trucks will be accessing the Port of Houston per day by the end of 2017, county officials are working with port officials to address needed infrastructure improvements.

The county collects property taxes to cover debt services payments at the port, which are $53 million for fiscal year 2017 and are projected to be about the same for the next five years.

Several projects are expected to be brought before Commissioners Court over the next year related to improvements at NRG Park, including upgrading phone systems and resurfacing parking lots within the complex.

County Engineer John Blount said construction is underway on several projects including a joint processing center—off Baker St. north of Buffalo Bayou downtown—and a new 911 call center servicing the north Houston area.​
