TxDOT is beginning three much needed local sidewalk projects.
The Texas Department of Transportation is administering the TAP (Transportation Alternatives Program) sidewalk construction project in three areas in Huntsville and will begin January 4, 2017. Sidewalk construction will occur in the following locations:
1) On Sam Houston Avenue from Lake Road to Boettcher Drive along both sides of the street
2) Montgomery Road (FM 1374) from IH 45 to Sam Houston Avenue along both sides of the road
3) Lake Road from Smither Drive to the Ridgewood West Apartments along the west side only
The TxDOT contractor has scheduled to mobilize multiple construction crews so construction activities will be underway simultaneously in several locations. There will be lane closures on these streets as needed but traffic will be maintained in both directions. The contractor is aiming to complete the sidewalk construction project within six months, well ahead of TxDOT-stipulated period of approximately ten months.
As part of this sidewalk project, reconstruction of driveways and, at certain segments, construction of retaining walls will be completed. At many such locations, right-of-entry permits are needed where the contractor has to work outside the City/TxDOT rights-of-way. TxDOT will work with property owners to obtain rights-of-entry for these projects.
Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to be aware of changes in construction areas as the projects progress, and to use caution as our community is improved in these locations.
