Kingwood Drive Repairs

Kingwood Drive Repairs Extended West

This is off topic but it affects thousands of readers. Today, Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin announced that Kingwood Drive repairs will be extended farther west to Royal Forest beginning Monday, April 3.

The repairs began at Green Oak on March 20. Crews reached Chestnut Ridge today, March 31.

Houston Public Works will replace additional concrete panels in the westbound lanes of Kingwood Drive from Chestnut Ridge to Royal Forest beginning next week.

Repair work should finish by Monday, May 15, weather permitting.

After the contractor completes panels in the westbound lanes, construction will then shift to the eastbound lanes.

Westbound lanes under repair from April 3 to May 15

Allow extra time when traveling through this area or take an alternate route.

Work Hours

Kingwood Drive repairs will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Exercise Caution

Flagmen and orange traffic cones will help with traffic flow through the construction zone as the project will require a one-lane closure. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Likewise, businesses and residents will have access to driveways and sidewalks at all times, but may experience an increase in noise levels due to trucks and equipment in the area.

The cost of the Kingwood Drive repairs is $160,000 and is funded with Mayor Pro Tem Martin’s Council District Service Funds.
