Construction Scheduled for Mills Branch Drive Safe Sidewalk Project
Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin is pleased to announce, in an effort to provide increased pedestrian mobility as well as safety, Houston's Public Works will be in the Kingwood area to install a new safe sidewalk on the west side of Mills Branch Drive, between Riverpoint Village Drive and Clover Valley Drive. 

The implementation of this sidewalk became a priority for Council Member Martin after concerned parents contacted our office requesting this sidewalk to increase safety for students attending Shadow Forest Elementary School. Council Member Martin was happy to allocate $129,699 from Council District Service Funds to accommodate this request.

Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, December 10, and is expected to be completed by the end of February 2019, weather permitting. Crews will operate between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. In an effort to not impede rush hour traffic, lane interruptions and closures should only occur between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flaggers and caution devices, like orange traffic control barriers, that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zone.
