Northpark Drive Overpass Project Open House
Houston, TX -  Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood area residents aware the Lake Houston Redevelopment Authority, also known as the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone 10 (TIRZ), will be hosting an Open House for Kingwood residents and businesses to learn more about the upcoming construction of the Northpark Drive Overpass Project.

This informational Open House will take place at the Kingwood Community Center, 4102 Rustic Woods Drive, on Thursday, February 6, 2020, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Northpark Drive Overpass Project will reduce congestion, improve mobility, and enhance safety in the Kingwood area by expanding Northpark Drive from four to six lanes between I-69 and Russell Palmer Road, and adding a grade-separated overpass at Texas State Loop 494 and the Union Pacific Railroad crossing. This project was identified as a clear priority in the 2015 Kingwood Area Mobility Study commissioned by the Authority. The project is currently in the design phase, construction anticipated early 2021, with expected completion occurring mid-2023. 

Mayor Pro Tem Martin encourages residents to attend where you will have the opportunity to visit information tables addressing specific areas of the project, ask questions of project team members, and submit public comments. There will also be a brief presentation at 6:00 p.m.

If you have questions or need additional information, please email NorthparkDrive@elmorepr.comThis email was set up by the Lake Houston Redevelopment Authority specifically to address inquiries related to the Northpark Drive Overpass Project.
