Public Works

The City of Kemah Public Works Department supports the City's infrastructure and keeps the city's parks, roadways, and streets safe, clean, and attractive.


Street Maintenance

Public Works provides the street maintenance within the city, but they only maintain the streets owned by the City.  There are some streets owned by the State or Galveston County as well as some privately owned streets.  While City of Kemah Public Works does provide right-of-way maintenance for the State and County owned streets, they do not fix issues with those street surfaces.  Any problems reported to the City related to these streets will be passed to the appropriate agency.

State Roads

Texas State Highway 146, State Highway 96,  FM 518, and FM 2094 are state owned streets and are maintained by the TExas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).  THE CITY OF KEMAH DOES NOT CONTROL THE TRAFFIC SIGNALS ON THESE HIGHWAYS.  To report signal problems, potholes, traffic concerns, and any other issues, please contact TxDOT directly by calling 713-802-5000.
