A project to expand Lockwood Road to be four lanes from Beltway 8 to the Union Pacific Corp. railroad has been delayed due to utility conflicts with Union Pacific Corp., according to Harris County Precinct 4 officials. Allgood Construction, the contractor, also withdrew from the contract, so Harris County will rebid the project in the second quarter of 2021. Bidding can take 90-120 days, and the project will be done in roughly nine months once construction begins.

Timeline: TBD


Cost: $2.32 million

Funding sources: Harris County Precinct 4, McCord Development•
