ReBuild Houston Project Underway in District H
Gulf Bank Bridge Rehabilitation Project

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:

  • West bound traffic traveling on Gulf Bank/Collins will detour to East Hardy Road (North bound) to Aldine Mail Route Road to West Hardy Road (South bound) to Gulf Bank.
  • East bound traffic traveling on Gulf Bank will detour to West Hardy Road (South bound) to Little York to East Hardy Road (North bound) to Gulf Bank/Collins.

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.
