Council Member Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood and Lake Houston area residents aware Houston Public Works will conduct a bridge repair project on the West Lake Houston Parkway Bridge beginning Friday, December 13.
 
The project consists of the replacement of fourteen bearing pads. The project costs $307,400 and will be paid for using dollars from the Dedicated Drainage and Street Renewal Fund (Fund No. 4040). The contractor for the project is ISI Contracting, Inc. The project is expected to be completed by Wednesday, December 18, weather permitting.
 
On Friday, December 13, bridge repairs will begin at 8:00 p.m. with closure of the northbound lanes of the bridge, two-way traffic will be redirected to the southbound lanes. This part of the repair project is expected to be completed by Monday, December 16 at 5:00 a.m. In addition to the road closures, the pedestrian sidewalks along the bridge will be barricaded and closed for safety.
 
Monday, December 16 through Wednesday, December 18, Houston Public Works will begin demobilizing equipment from the site. This activity may require one outside lane closure in the northbound lanes for transporting equipment and material, each day between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 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. All lanes of the bridge and pedestrian sidewalks will reopen following the completion of the project on Wednesday, December 18, weather permitting.
 
This project follows the completion of temporary repairs done by Houston Public Works earlier this year after three bearing pads slipped from their concrete beams. The slipped bearing pads were the reason for the difference in elevation between the seams of the bridge. The work completed this month is similar to repairs completed in 2015, which included the replacement of deformed or slipped bearing pads.

@Fallon : I ran across the bridge on Saturday, and you can really see how much the bridge shifted from the pedestrian part of the bridge perspective. I'm glad they will get the repairs knocked out before Christmas.

@buffaloglenn, we were noticing that the gap is getting wider. I was going to not be using the bridge much longer just because I am not that big on swimming. lol
