The demolition on McDonalds began this week. McDonalds is returning to Seabrook and will be located where the old CVS building was just off of East Meyer.
Life Storage opted to stay at their Seabrook location and remodel due to Right-of-Way Acquisition by TxDOT. The front part of the popular storage business has been demolished and the new store front is set further back from the highway.
Demolition has begun on the longtime iconic building, Neptune Subs. Known for their crazy discounts on Bald Monday, we will miss this unique building and all its charm.
TxDOT has begun the demolition on the old Enterprise Rental Car location. Enterprise Rental Car is still serving Seabrook and has relocated to the Miramar Shopping Center.
On Friday, November 30, 2018 the Seabrook McDonalds closed their doors and the Golden Arches were removed. But don’t worry, McDonald’s will be returning to Seabrook! The famous burger chain has pulled city permits and will be building a new location at 2800 Bayport Blvd. This location is the site of the old CVS Pharmacy and we thrilled they will be returning to SH 146. At this time we do not have an estimated date of completion but will keep the community up to date as we receive information.
It was a sad day for many in Seabrook as the iconic Tookies building was demolished prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. The green building had a unique charm and it is with a heavy heart that we had to see it go.

The demolition for previous restaurant Laredo’s Tex Mex has completed. The business owner is currently looking for new sites to relocate to in Seabrook. More detail will be given when made available.
The utility lines seen today are in the existing footprint of the highway and all of these will be relocated into the newly acquired right-of-way making room for the new highway. Utility relocation is one of the first phases and will take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete. Utility relocation begins at the end of 2018 and highway construction will begin in 2019.
As right-of-way acquisition has come to an end, businesses along the corridor are vacated. TxDOT now owns the property and is responsible for the demolition and upkeep of the property. The City of Seabrook is communicating with TxDOT regarding the properties and the need for mowing. You can view all acquired properties by visiting TxDOT’s Real Property Asset Map.
You may be wondering what these jersey barriers are for in front of the Subway off 146 on the north side of town. TxDOT has begun the staging process for the project’s construction phase. Utility relocation will begin later this year and actual highway construction will begin in 2019.
