Commissioner Noack seeks to send strong message regarding county budget, tax rate
"An effort by Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack to keep the county’s 2022 budget lean by committing to a tax rate that would not generate more revenue got little support by fellow court members Tuesday.

While commissioners agree they do not want to increase the tax rate, several said it is too early to make any determination on the rate noting law enforcement will likely need to add more personnel.

Noack explained his desire to make the move is based on many taxpayers who have suffered financially during the COVID-19 pandemic. He added the exploding housing market is driving up home values increasing property owner’s taxes."

“In some ways, it has been really devastating for a lot of people,” Noack said. “(Increasing home values) put our citizens in a really bad spot and it looks like the appraisal district hasn’t missed a beat.”

Road Project Updates
Bridge, intersection work continues along Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive project

Project Update: The Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive widening, intersection improvement and signalization project started at the end of October.

D&W Contractors is starting pavement work for the new lanes at the Rayford Road-Allegro Bend intersection. Allegro Bend at Rayford Road will be closed starting April 16 and is expected to reopen by the end of the month.

In the meantime, residents can use Cochran Park Trail to access Allegro Bend Boulevard.
The contractor also has started work on the storm sewer along Birnham Woods Drive north of Rayford Road. In addition, bridgework east of Spring Trails Park Drive will continue, as will completion of the concrete pavement along the new eastbound lanes.

Residents should expect additional detours as concrete pavement work continues at the intersections and tie-ins along the project.

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 a traffic signal at the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods intersection and widening Birnham Woods Drive 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: 360 calendar days
Allegro Bend closure
Kuykendahl Road widening project making progress

Project Update: WadeCon LLC started the Kuykendahl Road widening project in January. After clearing the approximately 1.5-mile stretch for the new northbound lanes and bridge, the contractor has been working on the temporary ditch running along the northeast side of the project and has started embankment work by the bridge. Work on pilings for the new bridge should start in the coming days.

CenterPoint Energy also has started work on relocating a 12-inch gas line along the 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.

The 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: 365 calendar days
