Lane Closures on Texas State Highway 3/Old Galveston Road 

Houston - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin would like to make residents aware that the City of Houston Public Works Department (HPW) will be making repairs to the top of a recently damaged manhole located at 16305 Old Galveston Road, beginning Monday, February 5, 2018. The project is anticipated to be completed by Tuesday, February 20, 2018. 

While making repairs to the manhole, HPW will be installing an air release valve. The air release valve is designed on pressure pipe at elevation changes and is located along the alignment based on modeling results of that pipe. An air release valve previously existed here and at some point was damaged and removed. This work order will restore the original designed location of the air release valve. 

During construction, the outside southbound lane of the 16300 block of Old Galveston Road will be closed during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Drivers should expect reduced traffic speed through the channelized area during this time. To ensure driver and worker safety, traffic control measures will be in place at all times. The District E office has contacted the Houston Police Department's Clear Lake Substation to ask that officers monitor the location and provide assistance with traffic control as needed. 

For more information, please contact the District E Office by emailing or by calling (832) 393 - 3008.
