This is off-topic but it affects thousands of readers who may be delayed on their way to work or medical appointments this week. Kingwood Drive will shut down in both directions at Loop 494 from 9 a.m. on Thursday, February 4 to 7 p.m. on February 6. North-South traffic on Loop 494 will remain open.
Purpose to Widen KWD and Add Sidewalk
TXDoT and Union Pacific Railroad have agreed on the closure to accommodate roadway widening and new sidewalk. The railroad track crossing at Kingwood will also have to be widened and replaced. TxDOT can stop all train traffic to perform the work during that window.
To detour the closure, consider Northpark Drive or Hamblen Road.
Closures Subject to Change Depending on Weather
All closures are subject to change due to inclement weather. TXDOT is asking drivers to be cautious in the construction area.
