Commissioner James Noack and the Precinct 3 team have been working hard to make sure that our community is the best that it can be. Here is an update on some of the things we have been working on this past month as well as some plans we have for the future in order to improve the growth, management, infrastructure and mobility in our community.
Tropical disturbance in Gulf brings possibility of heavy rain this weekend
A tropical system moving into Southeast Texas this weekend is expected to bring anywhere from 2-5 inches of rain to Montgomery County, according to the National Weather Service.

Residents should prepare for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the weekend, with the most intense rainfall expected Sunday afternoon through Monday evening.

The heavy rainfall could cause flooding on streets and in low-lying areas. Residents are advised to stay off of roads during periods of intense rainfall. Those who must drive should proceed with caution and avoid standing and rushing water. Please observe high-water crossing signs. Creeks and tributaries also could experience a fast rise in water during the storms. 

Residents can monitor the current stream levels and view forecasts for creeks and tributaries by using the NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service at


Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s office will have staff ready to respond to any issues that arise throughout the weekend.

This week, Precinct 3 crews have been clearing ditches and major drainage areas of debris to help prevent blockage and ensure water drains properly. For debris in county road right of way and ditches, please call the Precinct 3 office at 281-367-3977.

To receive emergency alerts and notifications from Montgomery County please register at, .

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as the system nears.

Now on the Precinct 3 website, you can see the breakdown of every road bond project, including the estimated cost, engineering firm and progress. We also added information for other major projects and road improvements, such as striping.
What do we do?
How does Precinct 3 serve you? We put together a video to show you all of the services provided by Precinct 3.
Progress continues on Rayford Road project

  • The Rayford Road widening and overpass project continues to make progress and remains on schedule for completion by summer 2019.

  • Crews have completed pouring the concrete bridge for the Union Pacific Railroad overpass and will soon work on the roadway to create a smooth transition from Rayford Road to the overpass. The westbound lanes of the bridge are projected to be open by late September.

Storm sewer installation along Rayford Road.
  • Work to extend Aldine Westfield Road to the south side of Rayford Road is ongoing. The extension will provide the Spring Creek Pines subdivision with another entrance/exit.

  • Crews are currently working to complete the Drainage District 6 bridge between Wild Rose Drive and Aldine Westfield Road.
Wild Rose Intersection and Realignment:

  • The dedicated center left-turn lane on Rayford Road at the intersection with Wild Rose will be changed to an eastbound inside lane as concrete barriers are extended farther west on the south side of Rayford Road to just west of Wild Rose, with the outside eastbound lane closed.
  • There no longer will be a dedicated left-turn lane into Faith United Methodist Church from westbound Rayford Road.
  • The south turn onto Wild Rose, along with the intersection and traffic light will shift slightly to the west of its existing location. The intersection realignment should be in place by the end of August.

Rayford Road widening (from Wild Rose to West Hawthorne Drive):

  • The outside eastbound lane of Rayford Road from west of Wild Rose to the Drainage District 6 bridge (west of Aldine Westfield) will be closed for storm sewer installation followed by road widening.
  • Once the eastbound roadwork is completed, the concrete barriers will be shifted to the north side of Rayford Road, closing the outside westbound lane, for road widening along the same stretch.
  • This part of the project is expected to take three to four months.

Imperial Oaks-Rayford Road intersection

  • The inside left-turn lane from Imperial Oaks Boulevard onto westbound Rayford Road has been closed due to the concrete barrier blocking the outside westbound lane on Rayford.
  • There is not enough room to allow two left-turn lanes from Imperial Oaks onto the two existing westbound Rayford lanes while construction there continues.
  • The temporary left-turn lane closure is for the safety of motorists and crews. The inside left-turn lane will reopen when the road-widening project shifts from the south side of Rayford to the north side.

Alternating Lane Closures as Needed:

  • Eastbound and westbound temporary lane closures will occur from Richards Road to the Grand Parkway, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, 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!

  • This project added a third through lane along eastbound Woodlands Parkway from 800 feet north of South Forestgate Drive to the Kuykendahl Road intersection. The third lane has a concrete curb and gutter and an open ditch section along the right of way. There are now traffic signal improvements at South Forestgate Drive and Lake Woodlands Drive intersections.

  • Woodlands Parkway will be widened from 6 to 8 lanes just west of IH-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.

2 mosquito samples test positive for West Nile virus

The Precinct 3 Commissioner’s Office, in partnership with The Woodlands Township, continues mosquito abatement measures to protect the public from any mosquito-borne illness.

The Montgomery County Mosquito Abatement team detected its first West Nile virus positive mosquito of the season in a sample tested in-house on Tuesday, June 5. The township also had a sample come back positive from the Texas Department of State Health Services Thursday.

Spraying started Wednesday in the area where the first positive sample was obtained. Spraying will begin tonight in the area where the second positive sample was obtained. Treatment includes spraying all streets and county rights of way within the affected areas twice in one week.

Residents can check the treatment activity map ( 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, eliminating standing water, also should be taken.

Please direct questions via email to or call the mosquito phone line at 281-364-4203.

We urge residents to take precautions while outdoors and think WET.
