TxDOT has created work zones on the Clear Creek Channel Bridge. These work zones have shifted traffic on the Clear Creek Channel Bridge to the west with two lanes in each direction. Barriers currently separate north and south bound traffic on the bridge. Additional traffic updates are listed below as TxDOT moves forward with Phase 1; widening the northbound lanes on the Clear Creek Channel Bridge and building a new northbound frontage road in Seabrook.

For real time lane-closure and traffic updates, visit Houston TranStar or download their app from the App Store or Google Play.

This site is your information source for project and construction updates. While the website is maintained by the City of Seabrook, the expansion project is managed by TxDOT and their team.

 

What to expect and when…

 

Many may wonder “if” and “when” actual construction will begin, so let us break it down for you. The current schedule is as follows:

  • Right-of-Way Acquisition and Demolition is Ongoing
    TxDOT began acquiring properties in January 2016 and as properties are acquired and vacated TxDOT will schedule demolitions. This is a long process but is nearing the end.

  • Utility Relocations is Ongoing
    A variety of utilities and pipelines must be relocated as the project progresses. Utility relocation began in November 2018.

  • Construction Phase 1 - Construction will begin on February 13, 2019
    This phase will widen the existing northbound Clear Creek bridge and build a new northbound frontage road in Seabrook (18 months duration*)

  • Construction Phase 2 - Slated to begin upon completion of Phase 1
    This phase will widen the existing southbound Clear Creek bridge, build a new southbound frontage road, and build the majority of the new express bridge (24 months duration*)

  • Construction Phase 3

    This phase will reconstruct and elevate the existing SH146 mainlines and build a new northbound front road in Kemah (12 months duration*)

  • Construction Phase 4

    Finish the new express bridge, finish the southbound frontage road in Kemah (6 months duration*)

*Phase durations are per designer estimations and are subject to change during construction.

Phase 1 and 2 will be expanded upon further once construction has begun. Please check our Recent Updates page for the most current information.
