Upper Kirby Construction
Concrete Going Down Next Week

Westheimer Reconstruction: Kirby to Buffalo Speedway

Work on the Westheimer storm drainage, paving and streetscape improvements package is well underway with two concurrent phases of work occurring simultaneously. 

Crews have poured the northwest quadrant of the Buffalo Speedway/Westheimer intersection and anticipate being ready to shift to the northeast quadrant at some point next week. Following the reconstruction of the northern half of the intersection, crews will continue the new storm system on Westheimer, moving east toward concurrent work being completed between Bellemeade and Eastside. 

Work on the eastern side of the project has been progressing quickly as well. Crews are preparing the surface on the north side of Westheimer, roughly between CVS and mid block between Bellemeade and Eastside, and will be framing and pouring concrete next week. Only one half of the Bellemeade intersection will be poured next week, allowing for half of the intersection to remain open as the concrete cures. Once poured, the road will be ready to reopen in approximately five to seven days. Crews will come back to complete the Bellemeade intersection once the new half can accommodate traffic. 

Lateral storm lines are also being installed on Sackett and Bammel between Alabama and Westheimer. The scope on both streets involves excavation of one half of the roadway, placement of new storm sewer infrastructure and restoration of the impacted area. During construction on both streets, two-way traffic will be maintained although on street parking will not be available. 

Work on Bammel is now substantially complete and crews are prepared to shift work onto Sackett. The plan is to begin setting up traffic control on the west side of Sackett on Monday between West Alabama and Philfall. Actual construction activity should begin with demolition on Wednesday. Crews will install storm sewer and restore the roadway prior to progressing north to Westheimer.
