Bay Area Boulevard Repairs Schedule
Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin has approved through the use of his Council District Service Fund, panel replacement and curb repairs along Bay Area Boulevard. The repairs are scheduled to begin along Bay Area Boulevard on Monday, May 22, 2017. The scope of work includes removal and replacement of sections of roadway along Bay Area Boulevard from El Camino Real to University Driveas well as repairing damaged curbing from El Camino Real to Middlebrook Drive. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of Summer 2017. 
The City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department (PWE) is scheduled to start panel replacements at the 1900 block of Bay Area Boulevard in the gutter and middle lanes traveling eastbound, then will move to the esplanade lane. The curb repairs will begin simultaneously with the panel replacements. Curbs along the gutter and esplanades lanes will be replaced starting at the 1900 block of Bay Area Boulevard. Once the eastbound lanes are complete, crews will begin working in the westbound lanes. While multiple repairs will be occurring, one lane will remain open at all times to maintain the flow of traffic. 

Although, construction activities behind closed areas may occur from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., construction equipment movement in the driving lanes will be limited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m  in an effort to reduce congestion.
During the time of the repairs increased travel times through the construction area should be expected. There will be access to businesses and sidewalks along the roadway at all times. To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures including signage and an arrow board will be in place. The District E office has contacted the Houston Police Department's Clear Lake substation to ask that officers monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed.
