Woodland Ridge and Forest Shores Lift Stations Force Main Replacement Project
 
Houston, TX - Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood area residents aware Houston Public Works is conducting a Force Main Renewal and Replacement Project for the Woodland Ridge Lift Station and Forest Shores Lift Station. The project consists of replacing the wastewater force mains along Kingwood Drive from West Lake Houston Parkway to Forest Garden Drive and from Woodland Hills Drive to Forest Shores Drive. A force main is a pressurized sewer pipe that pushes wastewater in a situation where it cannot flow smoothly due to elevation changes.

Crews began Monday, May 11 on the Woodland Ridge portion of the project and is expected to finish those improvements by Thursday, July 30, weather permitting. The Forest Shores lift station improvements are expected to begin today, July 2 with expected completion by Friday, September 4, weather permitting. Construction activities are expected to take place Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
 
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 zone as the project will require one lane closure. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Businesses and residents will have access to driveways and sidewalks at all times, and may experience an increase in noise levels due to trucks and equipment in the area.

For more information, please contact Mayor Pro Tem Martin's office at (832) 393-3008 or via email at  districte@houstontx.gov .
