Road Projects
Rayford Road weekend closure at Geneva starts tonight

Rayford Road is scheduled to be closed to through traffic at Geneva Drive starting at 10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, and reopening by 5 a.m. Monday, Dec. 17.

The contractor for the Rayford Road Widening Project will be installing large junction boxes and box culverts under Rayford Road at Geneva Drive, connecting drainage from the north side of Rayford to the new Spring Creek outfall. Installation of the junction boxes requires a large crane and heavy equipment that cannot be safely operated directly adjacent to traffic.

Traffic headed east on Rayford Road from Interstate 45 will be diverted north to Richards/Hanna Road. Westbound traffic coming from the Grand Parkway will be diverted north to Imperial Oaks Drive, which turns into Robinson Road (See map for alternate routes shown in green). Drivers can expect heavy traffic at the intersection of Hanna and Robinson Roads during the Rayford Road closure.
Access to local neighborhoods will be maintained as follows:

  • Residents who live in neighborhoods along Rayford Road will not be able to pass through the Geneva intersection on Rayford Road. Those living just east of the intersection must go east toward Imperial Oaks and the Grand Parkway; and those living just west of Geneva must go west toward Richards Road and Interstate 45.

  • Residents who live off of East Geneva north of Rayford Road will be forced to turn east out of their neighborhood at the Rayford/Geneva intersection.

  • Residents who live off of Geneva south of Rayford Road must take Spring Hills Drive or Helen Drive to Lazy Lane in order to turn west onto Rayford Road by the railroad tracks.

  • Local access will be provided to businesses along Rayford Road.
Law enforcement officers will be stationed at the Richards Road and Imperial Oaks Drive intersections along Rayford Road in order to direct traffic during the closure. An officer also will be located at the Hanna/Robinson and Richards/Richard intersections to help with the flow of traffic.

The Rayford Road Widening Project was part of the November 2015 road bond referendum passed by voters. The project will widen Rayford Road to six lanes (three in each direction) from Richards Road to the Grand Parkway. The project also includes a bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks just west of Lazy Lane for both eastbound and westbound traffic.

The Rayford Road widening project is expected to be completed in 2019.

Storm Drainage near DD6
Progress continues on Rayford Road

  • Precinct 3 crews are installing the storm drainage system near the Drainage District 6 Bridge and are working west toward Wild Rose Drive on the south side of Rayford Road.

  • Crews also are installing the storm drainage system on Aldine Westfield Road, near the new entrance/exit of the Spring Creek Pines subdivision.

  • Once crews complete the installation of the junction boxes at the Rayford/Geneva intersection this weekend, crews will begin working back toward the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge, installing storm drainage pipes on the north side of Rayford. This will involve an outside lane closure where work is being done. Once the crews complete these sections, road-widening work will begin.

Alternating Lane Closures as Needed:

Eastbound and westbound temporary lane closures will occur from Richards Road to the Grand Parkway, from for the duration of the project (there may be some Saturday lane closures for utility work).


Thank you for your patience while construction crews continue to work as quickly and safely as possible. We recognize that construction can cause inconveniences, and we appreciate your understanding during this process. Please follow all road signs, pay attention to barriers and watch for crew members in the right of way.

Plan ahead, stay alert and drive safely!

Eastbounds lanes now open on Woodlands Parkway!
The eastbound lanes on Woodlands Parkway from Grogan's Mill Road to I-45 are now open!

The eastbound side of the Woodlands Parkway widening project is substantially complete. Over the next six to eight weeks, there will be rolling lane closures as crews continue to clean up and perform minor cosmetic work on the new full fourth lane and dedicated right-turn/acceleration lanes. The lanes have not been opened from Many Pines to the I-45 south flyover.

  • Woodlands Parkway is in the process of being widened from six to eight lanes just west of I-45 to 0.5 miles west of Grogan’s Mill Road.

  • It adds one full lane in each direction to provide better mobility along Woodlands Parkway. There will be dedicated right-turn lanes and acceleration lanes at all major intersections. 
Elan Boulevard and Birnham Woods projects making great progress!
These two projects along with the ongoing Rayford Road widening project were identified in the South Montgomery County Mobility study as high-priority needs.
Elan Boulevard and Aldine Westfield Road Project overview

  • The Elan Boulevard and Aldine Westfield Road project includes the construction of concrete lanes, storm sewer infrastructure, intersection left-turn lanes, a traffic signal and drainage ditch construction.

  • Elan is being widened to four lanes from Aldine Westfield Road to Birnham Woods Drive. Aldine Westfield Road also is being widened to four lanes from Elan Boulevard to Knoll Oaks Lane.

  • A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Elan Boulevard and Aldine Westfield.

  • This project is estimated to take nine months to complete.
Crews currently are pouring concrete and new access roads for the fire department and other businesses along Aldine Westfield Road.
Traffic pattern change on Aldine Westfield at Elan Boulevard

Northbound traffic on Aldine Westfield Road at the Elan Boulevard intersection has been redirected to the southbound inside lane just north of Elan. This creates two-way traffic (one lane in each direction) from Elan to just past the fire station. The northbound inside lane of Aldine Westfield at Elan must go straight or turn left. The northbound outside lane of Aldine Westfield at Elan must turn right onto Elan. This lane change will remain for the duration of the construction work on Aldine Westfield.


The Elan Boulevard portion of the project includes widening Elan from Aldine Westfield to Birnham Woods Drive to four lanes, with a traffic signal at the Elan-Birnham Woods intersection as well. The project is progressing well and should be completed sometime in spring 2019.

Birnham Woods Widening Project Overview

  • This project consists of the construction of two northbound lanes along Birnham Woods Drive from 500 feet north of Fuller Bluff Drive to 500 feet north of the Elan Boulevard intersection.

  • Traffic signals will be constructed at the intersections of Birnham Woods Drive and Legends Run Drive and Birnham Woods Drive and Elan Boulevard.

  • A southbound right-turn lane also will be added onto Elan Boulevard with ADA ramps and pedestrian crosswalk features.

  • A 3,900-square-foot bridge with riprap slope paving will be constructed over the channel crossing just north of Cedarwood Trace Drive.

  • This project is estimated to take 12 months to complete.
