The corridor was selected as part of an annual Precinct 3 maintenance program
HARRIS COUNTY, TX – West Lake Houston Parkway is receiving this year’s Precinct 3 Road to Greatness treatment as it undergoes vast improvements within three phases.
The 5-mile-long Road to Greatness project will include repair of concrete, inlets, ramps, roadway striping, curbs, sidewalks, bridge guardrails, sign replacement, and the planting of trees along the median, which serve as both aesthetic and safety purposes. Phase One is from Stillwater Retreat to Madera Run; Phase Two is from Madera Run to 1960; and Phase Three is from 1960 to the Lake Houston Bridge.
“The Road to Greatness Program we have in Precinct 3 is about looking at an entire corridor and making the necessary repairs in one year to provide enhanced safety and save taxpayer dollars to reduce the need for major maintenance repairs in the future,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner Tom Ramsey, P.E. “We hope residents will enjoy the repairs along West Lake Houston Parkway, because it all starts with listening to the needs of the community; it’s what our Precinct 3 maintenance team does best.”
West Lake Houston Parkway is a major corridor that is heavily traveled from Beltway 8 to Kingwood and across the lake. The Precinct 3 team found degraded striping, broken curbs, inlets, and ramps. An additional need for more median trees was identified, as trees act as natural barriers to prevent cars from crossing medians and driving into opposite traffic.
Once the West Lake Houston Parkway project is completed, the team will work to identify their next Precinct 3 Road to Greatness corridor for 2024.
