This project, started in November, 2012, will increase Woodlands Parkway from four lanes to six lanes from East Panther Creek Drive to Grogan’s Mill Road. A third lane will be added to both the east and the westbound lanes eliminating bottlenecks. The $6.5 million project is funded by the Road Utility District #1 (RUD) and federal dollars, managed by TxDOT, coordinated by The Woodlands Development Company and will be maintained by Montgomery County.
A new contractor has been hired as of December 2014.
The Notice to Proceed has been issued to Texas Sterling to complete the Woodlands Parkway expansion project. The contractor has 14 days to mobilize. However, the contractor has already begun cleaning the area.
The contract period is 90 days, however the contractor estimates they will have the outside lane of the westbound side completed and open within 31 days.
The Texas Department of Transportation is preparing to begin setting up lane closures on eastbound and westbound Woodlands Parkway from Grogan’s Mill to East Panther Creek daily between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Lane closures are scheduled to start Monday depending on rain possibility. Updates will follow accordingly.
The Woodlands Parkway expansion project is still slated to open completely by April 23, 2015. The Westbound lane is still slated to open on March 3, 2015. Texas Sterling will keep the Township updated on any changes which may delay the completion of this project.
