Rayford Road expansion project east of Grand Parkway slated to start this fall
Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s Office will be seeking bids for the Rayford Road improvement project from Waterbend Cove to Birnham Woods Drive in August.

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 from just east of Waterbend Cove to west of the intersection with Birnham Woods Drive to create the two eastbound travel lanes. The existing road will be for the two westbound lanes along that stretch.

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.
This has been one of the projects on Commissioner Noack’s priority list to provide improved mobility in the high-growth areas east of the Grand Parkway.

The bid has been released this week with a due date near the end of August. The project is slated to start in the fall and will take approximately a year to complete.
Positive West Nile virus mosquito samples rising in Montgomery County
Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s mosquito abatement team has seen an increase in West Nile virus activity in the region compared to this same time last year.

  • 50 positive mosquito samples in Montgomery County to date.

  • 33 operational zones have tested positive this year.

  • 45 spray missions have been completed, treating up to four zones per mission to date.

Reminder, the mosquitoes that transmit the West Nile virus are most active from dusk until dawn. The use of mosquito repellant is encouraged when you go outdoors.
Please refer to the Treatment Activity Map on Precinct3.org to see when treatment will take place in your area.

Montgomery County Precinct 3 will continue monitoring for West Nile and treat for mosquitoes in areas where disease activity is present.

Road Project Updates
All new lanes open on Lake Woodlands Drive

The Lake Woodlands Drive widening and signalization project called for widening Lake Woodlands Drive from Interstate 45 to Six Pines Drive, including an additional through lane in each direction and improved turn-lane movements at intersections.

New traffic signals also were installed at the Lake Woodlands Drive intersections with Pinecroft Drive and The Woodlands mall/Pinecroft Center entrances at the east end of the project.

 “I am excited about this major mobility improvement to one of the most heavily traveled thoroughfares in The Woodlands,” Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said. “This is now the seventh road bond project completed that was funded from the 2015 road bond approved by voters.”

The project, which started in mid-April, is substantially complete more than a month ahead of schedule. Contractor Main Lane is finishing minor work and cleanup, with some landscaping improvements slated as well.
Woodlands Parkway/Robinson Road at I-45 Project

Project scope: This project will improve signalization and traffic movement entering and exiting the I-45 frontage roads at Woodlands Parkway and Robinson Road. It includes the reconfiguration of the cloverleaf at the I-45 frontage roads and addition of traffic signals. Robinson Road also will be widened to four lanes from 350 west of the intersection with Patsy/Westwood Roads to 550 east of the intersection.

The project started in early March and should be completed by early fall.

Current work: With all new signals operational, contractor Main Lane is focusing on final striping, signage and landscaping, while also completing the metal beam guard fence.

In addition, the signal subcontractor will be running conduit across the I-45 bridge in order to improve communication between the traffic signals on both sides of the bridge. This will require alternate lane closures on I-45 during this work.

Major traffic pattern changes with the signalized intersections:

  • Eastbound traffic heading toward Oak Ridge North on east side of I-45 turns left at signal to access northbound I-45 frontage road.

  • Westbound traffic heading toward The Woodlands on the west side of I-45 turns left at signal to access southbound I-45 frontage road.

  • Northbound traffic on I-45 frontage road turns right before the bridge to access Woodlands Parkway and Robinson Road.

  • Southbound traffic on I-45 frontage road turns right before the bridge to access Robinson Road and Woodlands Parkway.
Intersection improvement projects
Grogan’s Mill Road and South Millbend Drive

This project will create additional turn-lane storage by constructing a second left-turn lane for traffic on:

1.     Northbound Grogan’s Mill turning onto westbound South Millbend
2.     Southbound Grogan’s Mill turning onto eastbound South Millbend
3.     Eastbound South Millbend turning onto northbound Grogan’s Mill

In addition, right-turn lane access from South Millbend onto Grogan’s Mill will be improved.

Signal locations have been redesigned for this project, which will include concrete median removal as well as additional pavement. The project will require rerouting some intersection traffic during the project, which is slated to take no more than 90 days to complete once it starts.

The project should start in the next month.

Signalization of the Cochran’s Crossing Drive at Bay Branch Drive intersection

This signalized intersection design will be similar to Branch Crossing at Terramont. It will include a right-turn lane from southbound Cochran’s Crossing onto Bay Branch, as well as a left-turn lane from northbound Cochran’s Crossing onto Bay Branch.

This project currently is being advertised for bidders.
