Reminder: PWE to Conduct Gessner Road Community Engagement Meeting on April 13
As originally scoped by the Department of Public Works & Engineering (PWE), the Gessner Road Paving and Drainage Project, CIP #N-100017, would have widened the existing four lanes of Gessner to six lanes from Buffalo Bayou on the north to Richmond Ave. on the south. After a large number of area residents voiced opposition to the widening of Gessner, PWE was asked to look at other ways to gain needed roadway capacity and throughput without widening Gessner from four to six lanes. At this point in time, the final configuration of Gessner Road has not been determined. PWE has looked at additional alternatives to be discussed during the April 13 meeting. PWE was asked to re-evaluate alternatives that would not widen Gessner north of Westheimer and look solely at intersection improvements. This effort was performed late last year. The results of this effort will be presented at this meeting to seek additional comment from the community.
