Montgomery County Precinct 3 is widening a 0.17-mile section of Lake Woodlands Drive from west of Six Pines Drive to the western side of I-45. The project includes adding a through lane in each direction and improving turn lanes at intersections. The project is funded through the 2015 Montgomery County road bond and will be completed by late summer or early fall, Precinct 3 officials said. In July, pavement work was completed, signal work was underway, and striping and painting work had begun, according to Precinct 3.
