The next few months are going to be awlful in and around this area!

MEMORANDUM
TO: Wayne Sabo, City Manager
CC: David Glasco, Manager Engineering & Construction
FROM: Shannon Hicks, Director of Public Works
DATE: February 18, 2009
SUBJECT: NASA Parkway Bridge Demolition
Texas Sterling, the general contractor for the current I-45 expansion
project informed the City that starting Wednesday, March 4th, the
NASA Parkway Bridge over I-45 will be closed. The contractor will
begin milling up the asphalt on both approaches.
On Thursday, March 5th, the contractor will begin demolition of the
bridge. Demolition is scheduled for March 5th through March 9th. The
contractor stated that the interstate highway should be open by 5:00
AM on Monday, March 9th.
NASA Parkway will remain closed for up to 70 days (Approximate date
of May 14th). Please note that the contractor has major incentives to
complete this work early and will probably finish earlier than the
May 14th date.
Alternate routes for the Webster area are:
FM 518
Bay Area Boulevard
El Dorado Boulevard
FM 2351 / Clear City Boulevard
The traveling public should expect major delays in the Webster area
for the next 3 to 4 months.

Demolition of the bridge? So they'll build a new bridge that quickly? That doesn't sound right. Unless the timing of the rebuilding of the bridge isn't included in here.

Just passing along the information that was given to me.
I would think the time frame includes the building of the new bridge, but I don't know. I guess time will tell

It can be done if they have incentive. Remember how fast they rebuilt the elevated sections of I-45 downtown. It was nothing short of amazing IMO.

And the bridges along I-10 out toward Katy went up fairly quickly.

NASA and 45 are always a load of fun, construction or not. I'm sure this will be a real blast.

Blast....you know, they're demolishing the bridge and all....heh...haha....hahaha....LMFAO! Get it? Erm, anyway, it seems like that section of 45 and/or NASA are always under construction at one point or another.

Oh didn't mean anything negative by my comments - was just surprised at the amount of work they plan to do in a seemingly short amount of time.
