Hurricane/Tropical Storm Nicholas response
Precinct 3's road and bridge crews removed seven down trees and a substantial amount of debris from the roadways early Tuesday morning as Tropical Storm Nicholas hit Southeast Texas.

Due to a late shift in the track of Nicholas, Montgomery County faired well compared to some of the more southern counties in the area, with Precinct 3 only receiving 2-3 inches of rain over a 24-hour period depending on which area you are in.

The majority of the damage in Precinct 3 was wind-related, but all down trees were removed immediately.

As always, the men and women of Precinct 3 work around the clock during any and all severe weather events to serve you and to keep the roadways open and as safe as possible.

As Commissioner Noack likes to say, "Whatever storm comes our way, Precinct 3 is ready!"
Road Project Updates
Precinct 3 funds $4 million of Gosling Road construction project in The Woodlands

Montgomery County Commissioners Court on Tuesday approved payment of $4 million to Harris County for the Precinct 3 share of the Gosling Road widening and bridge construction project over Spring Creek. The check was expected to be issued Tuesday afternoon.

The project is a joint effort, with Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s office funding $4 million and Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle’s office funding the remaining $4.2 million of the $8.2 million project.

The project falls within the boundaries of The Woodlands Township, which benefits from the costs being spread among property taxpayers across Montgomery and Harris counties instead of falling solely on the shoulders of The Woodlands property owners if it were a city.

This is the second combined effort between Noack and Cagle to fund a project benefiting The Woodlands Township and its residents on both sides of the county line. About five years ago, the approximately $5.5 million Kuykendahl Road widening and bridge construction project over Spring Creek was completed. That project was jointly funded among Montgomery County Precinct 3, Harris County Precinct 4 and The Woodlands Road Utility District No. 1.

In addition to the two precincts partnering on the Gosling Road project, The Howard Hughes Corporation donated land for additional detention areas to meet drainage requirements.

"We appreciate the willingness of The Howard Hughes Corporation in working with us and keeping this project moving forward,” Noack previously stated. “When we all work together, we are better stewards of taxpayer dollars. We are excited to get this project going, which will greatly improve safety and mobility along this thoroughfare in our community.”

The Gosling Road widening and bridge construction project is scheduled to start later this year.

The project will widen Gosling Road to a full four-lane boulevard between Creekside Forest Drive in Harris County and Gatewood Reserve Lane on the north side of the project in Montgomery County. It will result in two 12-foot lanes in each direction. The road pavement will be 10-inch jointed reinforced concrete with 8-inch stabilized subgrade.

The widening includes the construction of a 1,817-foot bridge crossing over Spring Creek for the two new southbound lanes. The existing bridge lanes will become the two northbound lanes. The sidewalk and existing 8-foot shoulder along the northbound side will remain. The new southbound bridge will have a safety shoulder for motorists to access in case of vehicle breakdown.

“We are excited to get this very important connector between Harris County and Montgomery County built,” Noack previously stated. “This is one of the most utilized routes between The Woodlands and Harris County and will greatly improve both safety and mobility for motorists traveling on Gosling. It is great to see leaders in Harris and Montgomery County working together to make this happen.”

Northbound Gosling Road at the intersection with Creekside Forest Drive will be restriped to allow two through lanes of traffic and a left-turn lane. Some minor adjustments will be made to the emergency traffic signal at the intersection with The Woodlands Fire Station No. 8 to account for the new southbound lanes.

The additional detention will be constructed on the north side of the project and drain into Spring Creek.

Harris County awarded the contract in July to NBG Constructors.

The construction project, once started, is estimated to take 14-15 months to complete.
The Gosling Road and bridge construction project is one of several major projects mainly within the boundaries of The Woodlands and totaling approximately $27.85 million that Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner Noack’s office has completed over the past five years.

They include:
  • $7.2 million: Woodlands Parkway widening from Grogan’s Mill Road to Interstate 45 – Added through lanes, provided safer access/exits at intersections, improved signals and pedestrian crossings, added a few turn lanes off of side streets

  • $4.75 million: Kuykendahl Road widening and bridge project from north of Lake Woodlands Drive to south of Bay Branch Drive (In progress) – Constructing two north bound lanes and northbound bridge over Bear Branch to widen from a two-lane road to a four-lane boulevard

  • $4 million: Gosling Road and bridge project (see above release)

  • $3.75 million: I-45-Woodlands Parkway/Robinson Road interchange project – Upgraded interchange, improved/added turn lane storage and through lanes, adjusted turn-lane movements and added traffic signals to improve flow of traffic and access onto and off of I-45 frontage roads in both directions

  • $2 million: Kuykendahl Road widening and bridge construction project (Precinct 3 share of approximately $5.5 million project)

  • $1.8 million: Lake Woodlands Drive widening project from Interstate 45 to west of Six Pines Drive – Added through lanes, turn lanes and turn-lane storage, improved traffic signals, median crossings and pedestrian crossings

  • $1.6 million: Upgraded/added traffic signals at 13 intersections in The Woodlands

  • $1 million: Woodlands Parkway widening eastbound from Forest Gate to Kuykendahl Road – Added third lane

  • $981,000: Grogan’s Mill Road-South Millbend Drive intersection improvement: Added turn lanes, turn lane storage, reconfigured intersection and upgraded traffic signals

  • $465,000: Bridge rehabilitation – Repaired Precinct 3 bridges/channels after 2016 storms

  • $300,000: Turn-lane improvements/extensions at three intersections
Work on traffic signals, Birnham Woods intersection continues on Rayford Road project

Project Update: Traffic signal work continues along the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive widening and intersection improvement project. Signal poles are up at the Rayford Road-Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend Boulevard intersection and are being installed at Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest Boulevard. Pole foundation work will continue at the Rayford Road intersection with Spring Trails Park Drive, followed by poles and then finishing up with the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive intersection.

When construction is completed, traffic signals will replace all-way stops at these intersections:

  • Rayford Road and Birnham Woods Drive
  • Rayford Road and Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend Boulevard
  • Rayford Road and Spring Trails Park Drive
  • Rayford Road and Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest Boulevard

Pedestrian signal poles and crosswalks will be included as part of the intersection signalization.

In addition to the signal work, D&W Contractors placed rails on the bridge just east of Spring Trails Park Drive. The contractor also is working on the left-turn lane on the bridge from Rayford Road turning onto Spring Trails Park Drive.

In addition, D&W is completing the concrete pavement tie-ins on both ends of Rayford Road and is prepping for completion of more lanes at the Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive intersection. Residents should expect traffic delays and adjustments at that intersection with the ongoing roadwork.

Scope of project: 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 to create the two new eastbound lanes. The existing road will be for the two westbound lanes along that stretch. Left-turn lanes also will be added for eastbound and westbound traffic at most of the intersections.

The construction includes an additional bridge for eastbound Rayford Road traffic just east of Spring Trails Park Drive.

The project also involves constructing traffic signals at the Rayford Road intersections with Birnham Woods, Harmony Woods/Allegro Bend, Spring Trails Park Drive and Harmony Creek/Harmony Forest. Birnham Woods Drive also will be widened 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.

Contract length: The Rayford Road-Birnham Woods Drive widening, intersection improvement and signalization project started at the end of October 2020. It is a 360-calendar day contract to complete the job.
Bridge pour, more pavement work upcoming on Kuykendahl Road widening project

Project Update: Contractor WadeCon LLC plans to pour the deck on the bridge over Bear Branch in the coming weeks.

More concrete pavement on the northbound lanes also will be completed, weather permitting, in the near future along the approximately 1.5-mile-long project.

Scope of project: The project will widen Kuykendahl Road from a two-lane half boulevard to a four-lane full boulevard from Lake Woodlands Drive to Research Forest Drive.

Project design includes construction of two 12-foot-wide northbound vehicle lanes from north of Lake Woodlands Drive to south of Bay Branch Drive with an 8-foot-wide outside shoulder along the new northbound lanes. There will be a new bridge constructed over Bear Branch for the northbound lanes that have the shoulder as well as a walkway, mirroring the existing bridge.

The two existing lanes will become the southbound lanes once construction is completed.

Contract: The project started in January 2021 and is a 365-calendar day contract to complete the job.
Flintridge Drive completed

Contractor Teamworks recently completed the replacement of approximately 500 feet of concrete pavement and asphalt shoulder along eastbound Flintridge Drive just east of the George Mitchell Preserve entrance.

The road repairs and replacement were necessary after the Woodlands Water Agency needed to repair a sanitary sewer line running along the shoulder that is several feet underground.
