Motorists can expect increased traffic in and around the Seabrook Waterfront District on Good Friday and throughout Easter weekend. Due to anticipated traffic, the Seabrook Police Department will increase patrol with seven additional officers on duty on Friday, April 19, 2019; primarily patrolling and assisting with traffic control on the Point.
Detours are currently in place for traffic traveling northbound on SH 146 from Kemah wanting to visit the Waterfront District. Motorists traveling northbound on SH 146 will need to detour right on Meyer, turning right on Main Street (2nd Street) and then right on Todville. Those traveling southbound on SH 146 may exit the SH 146 connector ramp turning left on 10th Street under the bridge.
Motorists leaving Waterfront needing to travel northbound on SH 146 should continue straight on Todville and then left on East Meyer to SH 146. Those leaving Waterfront needing to travel southbound should take 10th Street under the bridge and then right onto the SH 146 connector ramp.
Temporary directional signage will be placed to assist with 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 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 while watching out for pedestrians.
The Seabrook Police Departments strives to make Seabrook a Safe and Secure City.
