Upper Kirby Construction
Work on Westheimer, Bissonnet, and Eastside Progressing
Westheimer Storm Drainage and Street Reconstruction:

The Westheimer Street Improvement project progresses this week with many new sidewalk areas under construction. 
New sidewalks have begun at the Bell Meade and Regency House sections along Westheimer.   Finish pavers will also be installed this week in several areas between Kirby Drive and Bellmeade Street. 

New sidewalks  have begun construction between River Oaks Blvd and Buffalo Speedway adjacent to St John's School  (pictured)  Please be wary of flagmen and other construction personnel in these areas. 

Work continuing for the next few weeks includes  new pedestrian lighting and  landscape. Upon completion of the walkway pavers,  sidewalks will be re-opened for pedestrian traffic. 

Bissonnet Storm Drainage  and Street Reconstruction:

New pavement is in place and intersections completed at Dincans and Wakeforest (pictured).  

Beyond this intersection, west bound traffic is reduced to a single lane at Belmont Street as is the east bound lane after Belmont Street. Please be wary of construction personnel and equipment as construction crews are currently excavating and installing underground utilities in these areas. 

At the west end of the project near Buffalo Speedway, crews have installed the new waterline and will soon begin repairing the roadway and driveways at the BBVA and HEB parking lots. 

Eastside Street Utility and Streetscape Improvements:
Eastside Street, south of Richmond Avenue, is progressing at a steady pace. The southbound lane adjacent to Levy Park and adjacent sidewalks have been removed with new pavement scheduled for mid-December.  New water lines in this area were connected last week. 

This week the construction teams are installing new storm drainage piping adjacent to Levy Park (pictured) . Please be courteous to other drivers and obey construction zone speed limits in this area. 

Notice: Eastside Street between Westheimer and Alabama will be closed to through-traffic from November 27, 2017 to February 24, 2018.
