Commissioner Noack leads effort to save taxpayers $1.6M via bond refunding
Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack recently identified an opportunity to save taxpayers roughly $1.6 million by refunding a 2021 bond series.
“Coming into office with a finance background, one of my main focuses was to find ways in which the county can save money,” Commissioner Noack said. “After thoroughly reviewing the county financials and current market conditions, now is the perfect time to make this move, reducing our overall payments by 14.837 percent.”
Since Commissioner Noack took office, not only has the tax rate decreased by over 15 percent but he has also identified over $42.5 million in savings to the taxpayers through his proactive approach to debt management.
Commissioner Noack is committed to continuing to serve the citizens of Montgomery County in a fiscally responsible manner.

Road Project Updates
Birnham Woods Drive widening project out for bid

Montgomery County is advertising for bids for the Birnham Woods Drive widening project from Waterbend Cove to Rayford Road.

Bid opening will occur in mid-December with the project expected to start in early 2022. The project contract will be for 420 calendar days.

Scope: Widen Birnham Woods Drive from a two-lane asphalt road to a four-lane asphalt road with roadside ditches between Waterbend Cove and Trophy Ridge. Widen Birnham Woods Drive from a two-lane concrete road to a four-lane concrete road with curb and gutter and underground drainage from Trophy Ridge to Rayford Road.

Expand Birnham Woods Drive to five lanes in each direction at the intersections with Waterbend Cove and Lexington Boulevard to allow for dedicated left-turn lanes onto the intersecting roads.
Gosling Road construction project scheduled to start in December

The Gosling Road widening and bridge construction project over Spring Creek is scheduled to start Dec. 6.

The project is a joint effort, with Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s office funding $4 million and Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle’s office funding the remaining $4.2 million of the $8.2 million project.

The project falls within the boundaries of The Woodlands Township on both sides of the county line.

Scope of project: The project will widen Gosling Road to a full four-lane boulevard between Creekside Forest Drive in Harris County and Gatewood Reserve Lane on the north side of the project in Montgomery County. It will result in two 12-foot lanes in each direction. The road pavement will be 10-inch jointed reinforced concrete with 8-inch stabilized subgrade.

The widening includes the construction of a 1,817-foot bridge crossing over Spring Creek for the two new southbound lanes. The existing bridge lanes will become the two northbound lanes. The sidewalk and existing 8-foot shoulder along the northbound side will remain. The new southbound bridge will have a safety shoulder for motorists to access in case of vehicle breakdown.

Northbound Gosling Road at the intersection with Creekside Forest Drive will be restriped to allow two through lanes of traffic and a left-turn lane. Some minor adjustments will be made to the emergency traffic signal at the intersection with The Woodlands Fire Station No. 8 to account for the new southbound lanes.

The additional detention will be constructed on the north side of the project and drain into Spring Creek.

Harris County awarded the contract in July to NBG Constructors.

The construction project, once started, is estimated to take 14-15 months to complete.
Rayford work nearly complete; lane construction continues at Birnham Woods intersection

Project Update: Contractor D&W has completed the concrete tie-ins along Rayford Road at the far west and east ends of the project. The contractor also recently completed the left-turn lane on the bridge from Rayford Road turning onto Spring Trails Park Drive. Final striping along Rayford Road is ongoing.

D&W now will focus on completing the turn lanes and widening of the road at the Rayford-Birnham Woods Drive intersection.

Traffic signal work will restart at the Rayford Road-Spring Trails Park Drive intersection this coming week. Construction and installation of the traffic signals at the Rayford-Birnham Woods Drive intersection will come near the end of the project as D&W makes progress on completing roadwork at that intersection.

Motorists are reminded to use caution through the work zone and pay attention to signage. Power is turned on for the new traffic signals at Rayford Road and Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend Boulevard as well as Rafyrod and Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest. The traffic signals will remain in flash as a four-way stop during this phase of the project.

When the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive project is completed, traffic signals will replace all-way stops at these intersections:

  • Rayford Road and Birnham Woods Drive
  • Rayford Road and Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend Boulevard
  • Rayford Road and Spring Trails Park Drive
  • Rayford Road and Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest Boulevard

Pedestrian signal poles and crosswalks will be included as part of the intersection signalization.

Scope of project: The project will widen Rayford Road to four lanes from approximately 40 feet east of Waterbend Cove to approximately 400 feet east of Birnham Woods Drive. A new concrete roadway will be constructed on the south side of the existing Rayford Road lanes to create the two new eastbound lanes. The existing road will be for the two westbound lanes along that stretch. Left-turn lanes also will be added for eastbound and westbound traffic at most of the intersections.

The construction includes an additional bridge for eastbound Rayford Road traffic just east of Spring Trails Park Drive.

The project also involves constructing traffic signals at the Rayford Road intersections with Birnham Woods, Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend, Spring Trails Park Drive and Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest. Birnham Woods Drive also will be widened to four lanes from approximately 600 feet north of Rayford Road to approximately 600 feet south of Rayford Road. All four Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive intersection approaches will have a dedicated left-turn lane.

Contract length: The Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive widening, intersection improvement and signalization project started at the end of October 2020 and is nearing completion.
Main-lane pavement completed, Kuykendahl Road widening project focus shifts to shoulder and drainage work

Project Update: Contractor WadeCon LLC recently completed the final mail-lane concrete pour and will be focusing on asphalt shoulder work, drainage ditch construction and tie-ins on the north and south ends of the approximately 1.5-mile-long project.

Scope of project: The project will widen Kuykendahl Road from a two-lane half boulevard to a four-lane full boulevard from Lake Woodlands Drive to Research Forest Drive.

Project design includes construction of two 12-foot-wide northbound vehicle lanes from north of Lake Woodlands Drive to south of Bay Branch Drive with an 8-foot-wide outside shoulder along the new northbound lanes. There will be a new bridge constructed over Bear Branch for the northbound lanes that have the shoulder as well as a walkway, mirroring the existing bridge.

The two existing lanes will become the southbound lanes once construction is completed.

Contract: The project started in January 2021 and is a 365-calendar day contract to complete the job.
