Bay Area Boulevard panel replacement scheduled

November 11th, 2019

Houston Public Works crews will begin a panel replacement in the Clear Lake area, Houston City Councilman Dave Martin reports. The project will take place along Bay Area Boulevard, just south of its intersection with Middlebrook Drive, on Thursday, Dec. 5, weather permitting. The scope of work includes replacing 162 linear feet of concrete panels in the southbound lanes.

On Thursday, Dec. 5, Houston Public Works crews will begin the preparation work at 7 p.m. One lane will be closed while crews saw cut the paving. The lane will re-open no later than 5 a.m. the next morning, Friday, Dec. 6. At 9 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, crews will re-close that same lane to remove and replace the concrete paving. This lane is scheduled to remain closed from 9 a.m. Friday, Dec. 6, until 12 midnight, Sunday, Dec. 8.

This same process will be performed the following weekend, weather permitting, beginning Thursday, Dec. 12, to complete the panel replacement in the opposite lane. The work is expected to be completed by Wednesday, Dec.18, if the contractor encounters no weather related delays. During the design portion of this project, Houston Public Works completed a traffic count of the area to create this work schedule with the goal of minimally impacting commutes and traffic congestion.

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 temporary lane closures are expected. One lane will remain open during the repairs process. 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.
