Airport Avenue Reconstruction Project Begins

The City of Rosenberg’s contractor on the Airport Avenue Reconstruction Project, Gonzalez Construction, has begun mobilization for the first phase of the project. Constructed is anticipated to begin the week of February 10, and will necessitate closures which will restrict traffic to westbound only from FM 2218 to Longhorn Drive. Detour signage will be placed by the City’s contractor, and drivers are asked to exercise caution if they are in the area.

The Airport Avenue Reconstruction project is part of the City of Rosenberg’s FY2014 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Phase I will span from FM 2218 to just west of Graeber Road and will improve the existing two-lane asphalt roadway with open roadside drainage ditches to a three-lane, concrete roadway with improved drainage. A continuous sidewalk will be added to the north side of the roadway within the project parameters, and improvements will also be made to water and sanitary sewer lines as required. Construction is anticipated to last through the summer.
