Houston City Council Member Dave Martin is pleased to announce Houston Public Works crews will begin a panel replacement in the Kingwood area. The project will begin along West Lake Houston Parkway, just south of its intersection with Oakwood Forest Drive (near Creekwood Middle School), on Thursday, November 14, weather permitting. The scope of work includes replacing 66 feet of pavement, as well as replacing an additional 16 feet of pavement on the crossover street to connect to the existing joint. The cost of the project is $35,000.00 and is funded through Council Member Martin's Council District Service Funds.
On Thursday, November 14, Houston Public Works crews will begin the preparation work at 7:00 p.m. One lane will be closed while crews saw cut the paving. The lane will re-open no later than 5:00 a.m. the next morning, Friday, November 15. At 9:00 a.m. on Friday, November 15, crews will re-close that same lane to remove and replace the concrete paving. This lane is scheduled to remain closed from 9:00 a.m. Friday, November 15, until 12:00 a.m. midnight, Sunday, November 17. During the design portion of this project, Houston Public Works completed a traffic count of the area to create this work schedule with the goal of minimally impacting commutes and traffic congestion.
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 as temporary lane closures are expected. One lane will remain open during the repairs process. Residents will have access to driveways and sidewalks at all times, and may experience an increase in noise levels due to trucks and equipment in the area.
@KingwoodDotCom : Thanks for the heads-up. I go 1960 to get my Mom from Kingwood but after dropping her off I like the relaxing WLHP drive back amongst the trees with music blaring and sunroof open. I guess the 1960 drive back will have to do but definitely will not be stress-fee. Please let us know when it's complete. Thanks, again!
@KingwoodDotCom : NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's my way out of my neighborhood to Sandy Forks to go to work everyday. I haven't noticed anything wrong in that area. Thanks for the heads up. Now I will have to remember to turn off before I get stuck in that. But, if I get stuck once, that will teach me not to do it again, I'm sure.
