Houston City Council Member Dave Martin announces that in an effort to provide more permanent pothole repairs, the City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department will be the Kingwood area to install a panel replacement near the intersection of Kingwood Drive and Willow Terrace. Beginning Monday, September 21, construction will begin on the left westbound lane. Crews are expected to have the work completed within 14 days, weather permitting.
Construction crews will operate between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, and possibly on Saturdays, to expedite the construction. During this time, expect the left westbound lane to be closed, due to these construction activities. Flaggers and caution devices will be put in place on site that will help with traffic flow through the construction zone. Additionally, the lanes impacted by construction will be closed overnight during the concrete curing process, and traffic will be diverted to the adjacent lane. Martin's office has also worked with the Houston Police Department's Kingwood Substation to help ease traffic congestion.
