All lanes open on Lake Woodlands Drive widening project

SPRING – All new lanes opened this week on the Lake Woodlands Drive widening project.
“I am excited to announce this major mobility improvement to one of the most heavily traveled
thoroughfares in The Woodlands,” Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said. “This is now the
seventh road bond project completed that was funded from the 2015 road bond.”
Lake Woodlands Drive was widened from Interstate 45 to Six Pines Drive, including an
additional through lane in each direction and improved turn lane movements at intersections.
New traffic signals were installed at the Lake Woodlands Drive intersections with Pinecroft
Drive and The Woodlands mall/Pinecroft Center entrances at the east end of the project.
Median crossing improvements also were completed between Six Pines Drive and Grogan’s Mill
The project, which started in April, is substantially complete more than a month ahead of
schedule. Contractor Main Lane still has minor work and cleanup remaining, with some
landscaping improvements slated as well.
Cost of construction will be approximately $1.5 million and was part of the 2015 road bond
project list.
