Work on a new bridge is underway over Spring Creek as part of a 14- to 15-month project to widen Gosling Road to four lanes between Creekside Forest Drive and Gatewood Reserve Lane.

The project is a joint effort between Montgomery County Precinct 3 and Harris County Precinct 3.

According to Montgomery County Precinct 3, contractor NBG Constructors finished placing bridge beams and began panel placement for the new bridge for southbound traffic as of June 15. The concrete for the two southbound lanes between Gatewood Reserve and the bridge was also poured. Upcoming work scheduled included additional concrete pours for the bridge deck and bridge panel placement.

The project will create two 12-foot lanes in each direction as well as the two additional lanes for a 1,817-foot bridge over Spring Creek. Northbound Gosling will be restriped at the intersection with Creekside Forest for two lanes and a left-turn lane.
