Construction work slated includes signalizing the Woodlands Parkway-Robinson overpass at I-45 and aligning lanes on the interchange between the frontage roads. The project is expected to take 12 months to complete, according to Precinct 3 officials. The contractor had almost completed drainage and pavement widening east of Patsy in mid-May, and that segment of the road opened to thru traffic in late May. The next portion of the project will add traffic signals and work on I-45 access, according to Montgomery County Precinct 3.
Joe Sherwin, public works director for Oak Ridge North, said at a May 11 City Council meeting the temporary closure of Robinson east of Patsy had been extended by about nine days due to wet soil in the work zone.
Sherwin said the contractor’s focus will next shift to the overpass signalization.
