First mosquito sample of 2020 season tests positive for West Nile Virus
Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s mosquito abatement team disclosed the first West Nile virus positive mosquito sample of the 2020 season was identified Friday, June 5. The mosquito was trapped in one of the department’s operational zones in the Panther Creek area of The Woodlands.

Treatment of the affected area took place at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, June 6. A second round of treatment occurred on the evening of Monday, June 8. Treatment includes spraying all streets and county rights of way within the affected area.

“Our office is working diligently to minimize the risk of residents contracting a mosquito-borne illness,” Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said.

Residents can check the treatment activity map ( http://www.precinct3.org/mosquito-abatement/ ) to learn when spraying will occur in their neighborhoods.

Residents are advised to avoid outdoor activity during the scheduled treatment hours. Personal protective measures, such as insect repellent, wearing long, light, loose clothing and eliminating standing water, also should be taken.

“The one thing that all mosquitoes require for reproduction is a source of water. Be sure to turn over or remove anything from your yard that can hold water,” Montgomery County Mosquito Abatement Director Justin Fausek said. “If you have areas where you can’t get rid of water, such as a birdbath or meter box, you can treat it with a larvicide containing BTI instead.”

For residents who would like assistance identifying mosquito-breeding sites in their drainage ditches or in the county right of way near their home, call 281-364-4203 to set up an appointment. Our teams can provide customized advice on how to deal with these issues.

Please direct questions via email to justin.fausek@mctx.org or call the mosquito phone line at 281-364-4203.

Road Project Updates
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 feet west of the intersection with Patsy/Westwood Roads to 550 feet east of the intersection.
The project started in March and planned for completion by year end.

Current work: Contractor Main Lane has completed all drainage and pavement widening work east of Pasty Lane/Westwood and is working to complete the widening on the southwest corner of the Robinson-Patsy/Westwood intersection. Through traffic reopened last month. Signal poles also are being installed at this time.
Lake Woodlands Widening Project

Project scope: The project calls for the widening of Lake Woodlands Drive from Interstate 45 to Six Pines, including an additional through lane in each direction and improved turn lane movements at intersections.

The project started in April and is expected to be completed by late summer or early fall.
Current Work: Contractor Main Lane has made good progress on lane widening with almost all concrete pavement work completed. The work at the Pinecroft Center/Mall intersection nearest I-45 is almost complete, while signal crews have installed poles and are hanging signal heads.
Concrete Pavement Repairs

Approximately 16 locations along Woodlands Parkway (between Interstate 45 and Grogan’s Mill in both directions) are being repaired along the older lanes.

Precinct 3 Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center opens new boardwalk
Montgomery County Commissioner James Noack is pleased to announce the addition of a new boardwalk at the Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center, located at 1300 Riley Fuzzel Road.

Work crews were able to complete the boardwalk project while the Nature Center remained closed to the public during the COVID-19 shutdown, ensuring visitors have something new to experience once the center reopened.

The Spring Trails Nature Preserve contains numerous pockets of wetland habitat, which can make it difficult to reach Bluegill Pond, a popular destination for visitors to the Nature Center. This new boardwalk is elevated above this wet, muddy terrain, making it easier for visitors to reach the pond. It begins at the trailhead located on the southeast end of the parking lot, winds its way through the forest, and ends at a 220-square-foot observation deck with picturesque views of Bluegill Pond and the surrounding areas.

Popular activities at Bluegill Pond include hiking, biking, picnicking, nature photography, catch-and-release fishing and kayaking. For more information, please contact the Nature Center team at 281-364-4225.
