    • This closure will allow the contractor to remove the existing fender system so they can begin constructing new bridge foundations.  The south (outbound channel) will not be obstructed by other work on the SH146 project while this closure is in place.
    • Please be advised that the south (outbound) channel will have two-way traffic during this time.
    • Message boards have been placed on both approaches to the channel to assist with notifying approaching vessels.
    • The closure will consist of two barges side-by-side within the channel
  • The south (outbound) channel, directly under the Clear Creek Channel Bridge (Seabrook/Kemah Bridge), will be completely closed beginning immediately after the previous north (inbound) channel closure is removed.  This closure will be in place continuously for approximately one and a half months.

  • Additional notifications will be posted and sent once the specific start date for this closure is known.
     
  • Additional closures, including short-term (12 hours to 48 hours depending on approval) full closures will continue to take place throughout the SH146 project as both sides of the existing bridge are widened and a new express bridge is constructed.  Notifications will be sent prior to future closures.
