Westheimer Storm Drainage and Street Reconstruction:
Westheimer Road improvements are moving forward this week with continued installation of
landscape along all sections of Westheimer. This includes new river rock beds at street intersections(pictured).
This week concrete work will be occurring at the 2900 block of Westheimer at the River Oaks Village Shopping Center. New driveway access and lighting modifications are underway.
For the remainder of the month of February, work will
include installation of pedestrian benches and trash receptacles.
To everyone's much awaited anticipation, the new pedestrian and traffic lighting all along the corridor will be active later this week.
Bissonnet Storm Drainage
and Street Reconstruction:
Crews along Bissonnet will be busy this week if the weather cooperates.
Work will continue in installing new pavement and utilities adjacent to the Belmont Apartments. Please expect slow traffic in this area.
Westbound traffic has been closed (pictured) from Wakeforest Avenue and diverted to eastbound lanes all the way to Buffalo Speedway. Traffic is running in both directions in this area until you reach Buffalo Speedway.
New pavement has recently been installed on the eastbound lane past Dincans Street. Traffic is still reduced to a single lane as crews work on the left turn lane and center median approaching Kirby Drive.
Please be aware of construction crews and all temporary traffic signs on Bissonnet as they do change from day to day.
