Prepare for Traffic Shifts and
Alternating Lane Closures on the
Clear Creek Channel Bridge
The information below is provided by TxDOT and is subject to change at any time at their discretion:
WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE BRIDGE:
Traffic shift on the existing SH146 bridge over Clear Creek Channel
Concrete barriers will be placed on the bridge and the bridge will be re-striped to shift traffic to the west. Two lanes will be maintained in each direction. This traffic shift will create a work zone on the east edge of the bridge which will be used for widening (adding 1 new lane and 1 bicycle lane).
The barrier placement and striping will take place on the nights of 3/4/19 through 3/7/19, weather depending, from 9:00 pm - 5:00 am each night. During this time, there will be alternating lane closures on the bridge.
The barriers will remain in place until the northbound bridge widening is complete in approximately 15 months.
CONNECTOR RAMP TO SHIPYARD:
The connector ramp to Shipyard Drive (on the east side of the bridge) will be closed until completion of the northbound bridge widening.
The outside lane on SH146 northbound from NASA Road 1 to Repsdorph Road will be closed during the day shifts of 3/4/19 through 3/7/19, from 9:00am to 3:00pm each day. This closure is to create a work zone for demolition/right-of-way clearing operations.
SOUTH OF THE BRIDGE IN KEMAH:
The south U-turn/access road will be fully closed beginning on 3/4/19 at 9:00pm. 3rd Street, 4th Street, and 5th Street will no longer be accessible from this access road during this closure. To reach 3rd Street, 4th Street, and 5th Street, traffic will turn east on 6th Street, then immediately turn north onto Texas Avenue. This closure is necessary for the northbound bridge widening, for utility work, and to reconstruct the access road. The closure will remain in place until the northbound bridge widening is complete in approximately 15 months.
BOAT RAMPS IN SEABROOK AND KEMAH:
The Seabrook and Kemah boat ramps under the existing Clear Creek bridge will be fully closed beginning on 2/13/19. Additionally, the parking lots immediately adjacent to these boat ramps will be closed on 2/13/19. Currently there is no plan to re-open these boat ramps as part of the SH146 project. TxDOT and local agencies are evaluating alternative boat ramp locations.
