Residents in Humble and Atascocita have a new option for accessing Beltway 8.
Harris County Precinct 4 and Precinct 2 partnered to connect Woodland Hills Drive to Beltway 8. The roadway is expected to help relieve congestion along West Lake Houston Parkway and serve as a major thoroughfare from Beltway 8 to Atascocita.
Construction began on the two-phased project in November of 2016. Roadwork included widening the existing two-lane roadway from Beltway 8 to near Ridge Creek Elementary School to four lanes, as well as the addition of a sidewalk.
Phase two, which began in April 2017, included the construction of a new four-lane concrete boulevard and four-lane bridge over Williams Gully from Ridge Creek Elementary north to the Atascocita Forest subdivision.
The project construction cost, originally estimated at $9.5 million, came in under budget at $8.2 million and provides Humble and Atascocita area residents improved access to Beltway 8.
Other planned improvements along Woodland Hills Drive include the installation of a second left-turn lane to Beltway 8 in the second quarter of 2018. Drivers can expect construction to begin in the coming weeks.
