A portion of Katy Hockley Road will soon be busy with heavy equipment, trucks and construction crews.

The city of Katy announced it will begin a drainage restoration project March 18 on Katy Hockley Road between Morton and Clay roads, according to a March 14 Facebook post. The project encompasses restoring roadside ditches, said Anas Garfaoui, city planner for the city of Katy, in an email.

The project is expected to be completed in about three weeks, according to the post.

During that time, Katy Hockley between Morton and Clay will be closed to all traffic—except residents and emergency services—between 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on weekdays, per the post. Alternative routes will be directed to Katy Hockley Cutoff and Pitts roads.

Outside those working hours, the road will be open to traffic, according to the post. The hours were selected to accommodate school bus traffic.
