Morton Road work causes closure

Officials with the city of Katy announced Aug. 8 the closure of Morton Road, between Katy Hockley Road and Katy Hockley Cut Off Road, to westbound traffic.

Anas Garfaoui, a planning technician with the city of Katy, said the closure is due to ongoing work as part of Phase 1 of the Morton Road expansion project. The road will be closed to westbound traffic for between 12 and 14 weeks, he said.

The Morton Road expansion project will widen a 1-mile segment of the road between Katy Hockley Road and Katy Hockley Cut Off Road. The road, now two lanes, will become a four-lane boulevard with an enhanced storm sewer system to improve drainage in the area. The cost of the project is more than $7.5 million, it is being funded by the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County.


Katy works to fix broken sewer line

The Katy City Council unanimously approved Aug. 8 a request designating the  repairs to a sewer line on North Street an emergency project. The sewer line on the street—more than 50 years old—was damaged by sewer gas, said Anas Garfaoui, a planning technician with the city of Katy. The damage has caused backups of sewage waste for area residents that required immediate emergency repairs, Garfaoui said.
