Traffic Safety Improvements Planned for Kingwood Drive Near H-E-B

From Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin's May 5, 2023 Newsletter:
 
Traffic Safety Improvements Planned for Kingwood Drive Near H-E-B
 
Houston Public Works will be installing traffic safety improvements in the Kingwood Drive median to the east of W Lake Houston Parkway and west of the Kings Crossing Drive traffic signal. The project is expected to start Monday, June 5 with an estimated completion date of Friday, June 30, weather permitting. The cost of the project will be funded by Mayor Pro Tem Martin's Council District Service Fund.
 
This Kingwood Drive median opening has been the site of numerous serious vehicle accidents. The planned improvements are expected to greatly improve safety. The most noticeable change to residents will be no longer having access to go straight across this median cut-through. Instead, residents exiting the shopping centers on the north and south of Kingwood Drive will need to utilize the signalized intersections at Kings Crossing Drive or W Lake Houston Parkway. For those residents traveling eastbound on Kingwood Drive, there will be direct access to the north shopping center through a left turn lane in the median. No other approaches will be permitted through the median.
 
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 the project may require one-lane closure. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Businesses and 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.

That intersection is dangerous. The same with the crossovers on WLHP with people trying to make left turns or to cross between the old HEB center and the new one. People shoot across and hope no one will hit them. I wish the new owners of the old HEB center could work out a deal with the car repair place and BofA to allow access onto Rustic Woods. I won't shop in old HEB center stores after 11am because I don't like to deal with the 2 WLHP crossovers.
