Hamblen Road Repairs

Houston, TX -  Council Member Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood residents aware Houston Public Works will begin repairs to the wash out on Hamblen Road, between Redbud Lane and Bonnie Glen Lane, tomorrow, May 15, 2019. The wash out occurred as a result of last Tuesday's storm. The repairs include complete reconstruction of the roadway. 

The contractor has completed mobilization and has equipment on site as of today. Crews will be working during the daylight hours, and will not be working weekends.  The work will begin tomorrow morning, and is expected to be completed within four to six weeks, weather permitting. Residents may experience an increase in noise levels because of trucks and equipment in the area. 

Council Member Martin would like to thank the Houston Public Works, Houston Police, and Houston Fire Departments for their quick response to the scene following the collapse. These departments placed barricades at the site and monitored the location to keep individuals from driving through the collapsed roadway. 

For additional information, please contact the District E office by emailing districte@houstontx.gov.
