From the desk of Commissioner James Noack

 
PRESS RELEASE
Zachry-Odebrecht Parkway Builders (ZOPB) met with Commissioner Noack’s Office, TxDOT,and the Precinct 3 Constable’s Office
and Montgomery County Engineers Office to discuss GrandParkway construction activities in the Riley Fuzzel area. ZOPB provided construction updates regarding completed and remaining work items, and walked the group through the remaining phases of construction. The next traffic switch that will alter travel routes along Riley Fuzzel is scheduled to takeplace in early September.
ZOPB will disseminate a map and details of the traffic switch within the next few days. The primary changes are centered around the Discovery Creek and Rayford Roadintersections, and this should provide some relief of the congestion you all have been experiencing overthe past few weeks. With safety being the number one priority, we will have law enforcement, provided by Off Duty Services, at the Spring Trails, Discovery Creek, Birnham Woods, and Rayford Road intersections during peak hours(6:30 am to 10:30 am, 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm) to monitor and direct trafficas necessary during the first week of the new school year.
ZOPB assures that there will be animprovement with their methods of communication, beginning with our coordination with the
Commissioner’s Office and area Homeowner’s Associations. We will continue to meet bi-weekly with Commissioner Noack, TxDOT, and the Constable’s Office to maintain an open channel of communication and see that your concerns are being addressed.
