Blalock Rd / S. Piney Point Progress Report
The contractor has completed installation of the 7’x7’ box culvert on South Piney Point Road. The southbound lane has been poured and will be opening as soon as the concrete has cured. The asphalt overlay to the south of the intersection has been laid, but not striped as of 9/16/16. Construction on Blalock is continuing and it is anticipated that the roadway will be open in mid to late October, depending on the weather.

The City of Piney Point Village will commence a major drainage project, originally scheduled to begin in early January at the intersection of Memorial Drive with Blalock Road and South Piney Point Road. The project had been delayed in order to make some major changes and obtain the necessary approvals from Harris County. While it is anticipated that the project will take approximately 8 months to complete, it will provide desperately needed drainage to the neighborhoods in the area. This project will start tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9, 2016.
Over the last two months, Piney Point officials hosted several public meetings to inform residents about the details of the project, including temporary changes in traffic flow. During those meetings, major concerns were expressed about the proposed one-way traffic on S. Piney Point Road during the construction period. Based on those concerns, Piney Point officials further evaluated the possible construction options and determined that there is an approach which will allow two-way traffic on South Piney Point and that option has been selected.
This will still be a major construction area, with two narrow lanes (11 feet wide) and the speed limit will be reduced to 20 miles per hour. Vehicles will be sharing the roadway with large construction equipment. No "thru" trucks will be allowed in the construction area because part of the temporary roadway will be located over an older water line.
For the safety of everyone; area residents, construction workers and drivers, this area will be closely monitored by the MVPD and there will be no tolerance for speeding or unsafe driving. If possible, we strongly recommend that you avoid this intersection and instead utilize alternative routes such as Voss Road or Gessner Road to travel to the Westheimer area. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this much needed construction project.
