Bellaire Blvd./Stella Link Intersection Temporarily Reopened
The intersection of Bellaire Boulevard and Stella Link has temporarily reopened as construction crews wait for paving to be scheduled. The intersection was closed for about a week as the installation of 9×6 storm water boxes progressed westward down Bellaire Boulevard.
The tentative construction schedule is as follows: Weslayan Street from Bellaire Boulevard to Riley Street – mid August to early November; Weslayan Street from Riley Street to Marquette Street – early November to end of December; Riley Street from Weslayan Street to College Avenue – early October to end of November; College Avenue from Riley Street to University Boulevard – end of October to end of March 2009.
Some delays continue to be experienced due to the relocation of CenterPoint Energy’s gas main, relocation of ATT’s trunk lines, and the soil conditions requiring dewatering of the excavation trench.
