Westheimer Storm Drainage and Street Reconstruction:
Westheimer Road improvements move forward with new signage, bus shelters and trees. (pictured). This
week expect to see more landscape along all sections of Westheimer.
Sidewalks and tree installation are complete
adjacent to Chuys with new landscape scheduled to be installed this week.
Work through the remainder of the month of February
includes installation of pedestrian benches, trash receptacles and landscaping.
The new wider sidewalks along Westheimer are a much needed improvement for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling through the district. Please let us know how you like them.
Bissonnet Storm Drainage
and Street Reconstruction:
Crews along Bissonnet were very busy last week and will continue this week installing new pavement and utilities. Please read the temporary traffic closures and re-routes described below carefully and expect slow traffic in this area.
There are new sections of roadway pavement open to traffic traveling eastbound, but expect traffic to slow down as you approach Kirby Drive as construction activity in this section is increased.
Westbound traffic adjacent to the Belmont Apartments has been diverted to eastbound lanes beyond the Wakeforest Avenue intersection. (pictured). Please be aware that traffic is running in both directions in this area until you reach Buffalo Speedway.
Please be aware of construction crews and all temporary traffic signs on Bissonnet as they change from day to day.
Eastside Street Utility and Streetscape Improvements:
Eastside Street roadway improvements north of Alabama Street are moving quickly. This week work continues with sewer lines and new irrigation lines. New sidewalk installation and lighting are scheduled to begin later this month.
North of Richmond Avenue crews have begun to mobilize for street and sidewalk improvements. The north bound lane will be closed for construction although two way traffic will remain. Please avoid any on street parking in this area.
Later this week, crews will continue work adjacent to Levy Park. We will begin to see construction of pedestrian sidewalks and electrical work for new street and walkway lighting. This section is reduced to a single lane in each direction.
Traffic lane closures for this week on Eastside Street include:
1. Eastside Street between Westheimer
Alabama will be closed to traffic until February 24, 2018.
