Motorists can expect increased traffic in and around the Seabrook Waterfront District in addition to traffic congestion around the Kemah Boardwalk on Good Friday and throughout the Easter weekend. Due to the anticipated traffic volume, the Seabrook and Kemah Police Departments will increase patrol. Seabrook will have an additional seven officers on duty on Friday, April 19, 2019; primarily assisting with traffic control in and around the Seabrook Waterfront District.
Temporary directional signage will be placed to assist with Seabrook traffic control, however, Chief Sean Wright with the Seabrook Police Department, encourages both residents and visitors to be patient while in traffic on Good Friday and throughout the weekend. Increased construction, lane and street closures plus Easter weekend events and festivals around the area will naturally result in more traffic congestion. Motorists who are not visiting Waterfront should avoid the area and find alternative routes.
Parking for area fish markets along Waterfront Drive will be limited. Do not park on private property and always be considerate of others in addition to watching out for pedestrians.
