Turn around, don’t drown! Be nice, don’t drive on ice! We’ve embarked on a new year in 2018, and already we must remember new slogans to keep us safe. I’m so proud of our Precinct 4 crews who worked 12-hours shifts to keep our Road & Bridge Department running 24 hours per day during the icy weather. Together, they worked to sand more than 300 miles of bridges spanning more than 2,700 miles of roadways so we can drive safely.
The trucks you have seen sanding bridges are the same trucks that cleared trees before Hurricane Harvey, served as rescue vehicles for residents as the waters rose, and then hauled away storm debris in the storm’s aftermath.
I’m also proud to announce that the more normal aspects of road construction are under way. Woodland Hills Drive now connects directly to Beltway 8, thanks to a partnership between Harris County Precinct 4 and Precinct 2. This major transportation project improves the lives of many Atascocita and Humble residents and proves just how much local government can accomplish when we combine resources.
We also strive to provide more programming at the popular Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve. Less than a year ago, Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve opened and has become a top recreational destination in Precinct 4. I encourage everyone to participate in some of these programs and experience the preserve’s beauty firsthand.
