ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District F
Westheimer at Barker Oaks Intersection Improvement Project
ZIP Code Area: 77094

Construction on the $178,000 Intersection Improvement Project at Westheimer and Barker Oaks began in June 2015 and is anticipated to be complete in December 2015.

When complete, motorists will see new traffic signals, replacing the existing stop signs, as well as wheelchair ramps and better pedestrian crossing on the north side.  Signalizing the intersection is due to increased traffic volumes at the intersection and is designed to increase capacity and pedestrian safety.

The new signals will control traffic as follows: 

  • Barker Oaks - southbound lanes
  • Westheimer - westbound lanes
  • Westheimer - eastbound left turn lane

The eastbound through lanes will remain unchanged.  Improvements will include new energy-efficient LED traffic signal heads, resulting in a significant energy savings to the City, and better visibility for motorists.  Additionally, there will be new pavement markings, traffic control signs, new pedestrian signals and wheelchair ramps for pedestrian crossing on the north side of the intersection. 

This project is funded through ReBuild Houston - the voter-approved pay-as-you-go plan to rebuild and maintain the City's aging drainage and street infrastructure, without incurring new long-term debt.  This project is an active example of how ReBuild Houston is providing better streets, better drainage and a better future.
