Upper Kirby Construction Update

December 9, 2011 

Buffalo Speedway
Pavement Installation Underway
 
Crews Pour New Roadway on Buffalo Speedway
Buffalo Speedway Construction Pavement crews have continued to make significant progress over the past week working on the east side of Buffalo Speedway moving from Bissonnet north.

Despite the first freezing conditions of the year, contractors will have successfully paved the main lanes on Buffalo Speedway between Bissonnet and US 59 by the end of the week. Poured just yesterday morning, the northbound lanes between Westpark and US 59 will again open up to three lanes approaching the freeway for the weekend. Over the coming week, pavement crews will continue driveway work as well as curb-and-gutter installation on the east side of the roadway with the goal of being able to switch traffic onto the new northbound lanes just after the first of the year.

Look for further updates as any traffic switches will be announced as they are scheduled. 


For more information on Upper Kirby construction projects and for issues and concerns as construction progresses, contact Travis Younkin at 713.524.8000 or email travis@upperkirby.org.
