New sidewalks are nearly complete fronting the Bell Meade and Regency House. Finish
pavers have been installed on the north side of Westheimer between Kirby Drive and Bellmeade Street.
New sidewalks are being poured this week between River Oaks Blvd and Buffalo Speedway adjacent to St. John's School (pictured) and St John the Divine church

Bissonnet Storm Drainage
and Street Reconstruction:
New roadway pavement is being poured the next few days on the east bound lane between Belmont Street and Wakeforest Avenue. (pictured). East bound traffic is reduced to a single lane in this area.
West bound traffic is reduced to a single lane past Belmont Street as new water line is prepared for installation. Please be wary of construction personnel and equipment as construction crews are currently excavating and
installing underground utilities in these areas.
On 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 regardless of last week's rain. The new pavement scheduled for the southbound lane is planned for late this week. The contractor will begin the new pavement in the cul-de-sac and work towards Richmond Avenue. Please observe all posted speed limit signs and exercise caution in the vicinity of work.
Roadway improvements further north on Eastside Street at Alabama Street are moving quickly. Much of the new water line and new storm line have already been installed. Please keep in mind that this half of the roadway has been completely removed, therefore, through-traffic on this street is prohibited. See traffic lane closures below.
