Houston, TX - Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood and Lake Houston area residents aware Houston Public Works
will conduct a bridge repair project on the West Lake Houston Parkway Bridge beginning Monday, April 27.
The project consists of replacing
bearing pads. The cost of the project is $307,400 and will be funded through the Dedicated Drainage and Street Renewal Fund. The contractor for the project is ISI Contracting, Inc. The work is expected to be completed by Wednesday, May 20, weather permitting.
On Monday, April 27, work will begin at 7:00 a.m. by closing of the northbound lanes of the bridge. Two-way traffic will be redirected to the southbound lanes. Construction activities are expected to take place Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
In addition to the road closures, pedestrian sidewalks along the bridge will be barricaded and closed for safety.
Please be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones in place on-site assisting with traffic flow through the construction zone.
All lanes of the bridge and pedestrian sidewalks will reopen following the completion of the project on Wednesday, May 20, weather permitting.
This project follows the completion of temporary repairs done by Houston Public Works last October after three bearing pads slipped from their concrete beams. The work completed this month is similar to repairs completed in 2015, which included the replacement of deformed or slipped bearing pads.
