Be aware of major road closures in the River Oaks, Highland Village and Afton Oaks areas so that you can change your driving routes in August and September. The City of Houston mailed notices about flood control construction starting August 15. The city will modify the drainage ditch that runs along the railroad track just east of Mid Lane in attempt to reducing flooding in the Galleria area. This will cause a complete road closure of San Felipe at the railroad track for 2 weeks starting August 15. After this is complete and San Felipe is re-opened, Westheimer at the railroad track will be closed for 2 weeks. And subsequently, when Westheimer is complete, W Alabama at the railroad track will is close for 2 weeks. Let's just hope that construction stays on schedule so there are no delays in reopening these important streets!
