I-45 Feeder Between Scott And Wayside Awarded $5.6 Million For Reconstruction

The project will be carried out on the northbound and southbound feeder roads that run between Scott and Wayside.

The Texas Transportation Commission has given green light to a project that will improve the condition of a feeder road located close to the University of Houston’s main campus.

The commission has awarded $5.6 million for reconstructing the section of Interstate 45 feeder roads that run between Scott and Wayside.

The reconstruction will be done both on the northbound and southbound feeder roads.

“We are looking at a July 2016 start date. The project will take about 9 months to complete with an estimated completion date of April 2017,” explained Deidrea George, a public information officer with the Houston District of the Texas Department of Transportation.

George added the reconstruction will enhance safety and smooth out the roads for the public.

She also said it can help alleviate flooding on the feeder roads, although “in situations where you have a lot of water coming in a short period of time flooding can occur.”
