Houston City Council Member Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood residents aware the Woodland Hills at Northpark Drive overlay project has been delayed until Wednesday, July 10 to better accommodate traffic in the area.
The scope of work includes resurfacing the asphalt street. This process includes milling off an approximate 2-inch layer of old asphalt, repairing the base as needed, spraying tack coat and overlaying 2 inches of new asphalt surface pavement. An overlay at this intersection has not been completed since Council Member Martin has been in office and is well overdue. The cost of the project is $134,415.70.
The project is scheduled to begin on the evening of Wednesday, July 10 and will be completed by Sunday, July 14, weather permitting. Crews are expected to work between 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, in an effort to avoid peak traffic hours. Crews plan to work throughout the day on Saturday, July 13. As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zone. Temporary lane closures and traffic delays are expected during construction hours.
Residents are encouraged to find alternate routes throughout the duration of the project. For access to the communities north of Northpark Drive and Woodland Hills, the suggested alternate routes are as follows: Glade Valley to Chanay Lane, Forest Bluff, and Bassingham Drive.
When they mill off that old asphalt and spray the tack coat, it will get all over cars driving thru there. I remember the huge mess that it was when they did that on Ford Road sometime back. When they say "find another route" they are passing along some really good advice.
