Commuters traveling through the Humble and Atascocita areas can look forward to new lanes opening on Wilson Road in 2019.
Plans include widening a section of Wilson Road between Beltway 8 and Atascocita Road from a two-lane asphalt roadway to a four-lane concrete section with a sidewalk between Humble ISD’s Park Lakes Elementary and Viscaro Lane. Construction began in January and is scheduled for completion on Oct. 29, 2019.
“Once construction is complete, drivers should see their commute times drop significantly, especially during rush-hour traffic,” says Capital Improvements Projects Director Pamela Rocchi. “The upgraded roadway will also require less maintenance, since concrete has a longer lifespan than asphalt.”
While construction continues on Wilson Road, north and southbound drivers can take Woodland Hills Drive to access Beltway 8, Atascocita Road, Will Clayton, and FM 1960. The roadway opened in January to help relieve congestion along West Lake Houston Parkway and Wilson Road.
