Clear Lake City Monument Signs to be Demolished
Houston, TX - The two Clear Lake City monument signs located on both the north and south sides of Clear Lake City Boulevard between I-45 and Highway 3 are scheduled to be demolished beginning Wednesday, April 6. The contractor, Cherry Demolition, will work on site for four consecutive days, weather permitting, to ensure that all materials are demolished and removed.
During construction, the public can expect the inside curb lanes near the monument signs to be closed from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Appropriate signage will be posted to alert motorists of these closures in addition to flagmen being onsite to direct traffic. Council Member Martin has also alerted the Houston Police Department's Clear Lake Substation of the upcoming work and has asked that officers also help with traffic mitigation.
Since being sworn into office, Council Member Martin has been contacted by individuals and homeowners associations regarding the blighted condition of the two signs that were originally installed by Friendswood Development Company when the community was first established. Since then, the signs have naturally deteriorated, been hit by storms such as Hurricane Ike, have been involved in vehicular accidents, etc. contributing to their overall current abating condition. Council Member Martin has worked with the Association of Clear Lake Communities and has received 11 letters of support from homeowners associations as well as Gateway Church for the demolition of the signs. As a result, he has agreed to partner with the Clear Lake Property Owners Association and contribute $10,000.00 from his Council District Service Fund for the project.
Council Member Martin extends his thanks to all of the individuals who have been actively involved in this process over the past three years, and looks forward to improving the overall appearance of the entrance of Clear Lake.
