Kingwood Drive Panel Replacement Repairs Schedule

Houston, TX - Council Member Dave Martin would like to make the community aware of multiple repairs being made on Kingwood Drive, beginning Monday, June 4, 2018.  The scope of work includes the removal and replacement of identified deteriorated pavement sections of existing roadway along Kingwood Drive. The goal of this effort is to preserve as well as to prolong the life of the road base while providing a smoother riding surface. 

On Monday, June 4, crews will begin panel replacements in the eastbound lanes of Kingwood Drive between The Lodge at Kingwood Apartments (938 Kingwood Drive) and Green Oak. The concrete panel replacements will be performed in the eastbound gutter and center lanes. Additionally, there will be a single panel replacement in the westbound lane of the Kingwood Drive and Green Oak Drive intersection.  Construction is anticipated to be complete at these locations, by Monday, June 18, weather permitting. See map below for approximate locations.



On Monday, June 18, crews will begin another panel replacement on Kingwood Drive in the eastbound gutter and center lanes, near Chase Bank (2611 West Lake Houston Parkway) located just to the west of the intersection at  Kingwood Drive and West Lake Houston Parkway. C onstruction is anticipated to be complete by Saturday, June 30, weather permitting. See map below for approximate locations.



There will be one lane open at all times during the time of construction to maintain the flow of traffic.  C onstruction equipment movement in the driving lanes will be limited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m During the project, drivers should expect reduced speed through the channelized area.  To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures will be in place at all times. The District E office has also contacted the Houston Police Department's Kingwood Substation to ask that officers monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed.
