ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District H
The Gulf Bank Bridge is currently closed to vehicles until temporary safety measures are put in place. The installation of shoring towers will allow the City of Houston to reopen the Gulf Bank Bridge while permanent bridge repairs are performed. The placement of shoring towers and other necessary temporary repairs are anticipated to be complete in July 2014, at which time, the bridge will reopen to traffic.
Motorists who use this bridge are asked to follow the listed detour routes:
The Gulf Bank Bridge Rehabilitation Project may include the construction, repair, removal and/or replacement of bridge approach slabs, various bridge joints and guard rails, as well as the structural repairs and replacement of concrete/timber bridges.
The Gulf Bank Bridge Rehabilitation Project will improve the overall safety of the bridge. This approximately $310,000 project, located at the Gulf Bank Bridge over the Hardy Toll Road, 77037, began in June 2014.
The ReBuild Houston Initiative is the City of Houston's voter approved pay-as-you-go plan to rebuild drainage and street infrastructure. Its goal is to improve quality of life and mobility for residents through the reconstruction and proper maintenance of drainage and street improvements. The Cullen Boulevard Concrete Panel Replacement Project is an active example of ReBuild Houston at work to better serve you.
