Today: Intersection Overlay Scheduled for Woodland Hills at Northpark Drive
 
Houston, TX -  Houston City Council Member Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood residents aware the Woodland Hills at Northpark Drive overlay project is scheduled to begin today, Tuesday, July 23. The project was previously rescheduled to begin earlier this month, but was delayed due to issues with the previous contractor. A new contractor has been assigned to the project, which is the reason for additional delays and new hours.

The  scope of work includes resurfacing the asphalt street. This process includes milling off an approximate 2-inch layer of old asphalt, repairing the base as needed, spraying tack coat and overlaying 2 inches of new asphalt surface pavement. An overlay at this intersection has not been completed since Council Member Martin has been in office and is well overdue. The cost of the project is $134,415.70, which is being funded through Council Member Martin's Fiscal Year 2018 Council District Service Funds.

The project is scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 23 and will be completed by Monday, August 5, weather permitting. Crews are expected to work between 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., in an effort to avoid peak traffic hours. There is no weekend work expected at this time. Once the mill and overlay are complete, crews will return Thursday, August 1 to begin permanent striping of the crosswalks and saw cut the loop detectors. 

As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zon e.  Temporary lane closures and traffic delays are expected during construction hours. 

Residents are encouraged to find alternate routes throughout the duration of the project. For access to the communities north of Northpark Drive and Woodland Hills, the suggested alternate routes are as follows: Glade Valley to Chanay Lane, Forest Bluff, and Bassingham Drive. 

For more information, please contact Council Member Dave Martin's office at (832) 393-3008 or districte@houstontx.gov.
