Post Oak Boulevard – South, Middle, and North Segments

Construction is continuing along the east side of Post Oak Boulevard for the installation of the sanitary sewer line from West Alabama going south. Contractor is preparing the subgrade to place the new pavement for the future northbound lanes in the vicinity of Hidalgo Pond.

The temporary traffic signal at Fairdale was made operational.

Work continues to progress between Westheimer and Ambassador Way with a focus on the 42-inch sanitary sewer installation and the placement of the future southbound lanes between Locke Lane and Westheimer.

The water line along the east side of Post Oak Boulevard has now been installed from San Felipe to south of Garrettson.

Pavement restoration of the future southbound lanes is underway immediately north of San Felipe.

All work subject to change based on weather conditions and utility conflicts.
