Precinct 2 Begins Intersection Improvements
Commissioner Adrian Garcia’s Office begins construction on various intersections along Wallisville Road in the Highlands area
Harris County, TX— Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia plans the start of construction on improvements along Wallisville Road in Highlands and east toward Baytown.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in this area over recent years, especially with housing developments along this corridor,” said Commissioner Adrian Garcia. “Many people use this road to get to and from work. Kids wait alongside it to catch their bus. Improvements are absolutely necessary for safety, our economy and I’m happy to finally begin the work.”
Improvements for the $2 million project include signal installations and turn-lane additions at the intersections of Wallisville and Wade Road, Thompson Road, and FM 2100. Construction is expected to be complete late 2021.
Drivers should expect single-lane closures and some full closures throughout the duration of the project. Signage will be placed ahead of time to notify the public of upcoming closures.
“My office has received some concerns for work around school zones. Know that we have coordinated with contractors and the school to work outside of peak drop-off and pickup hours. Hopefully this will help avoid some headaches for everyone,” said Commissioner Garcia.
