LOCATION Bingle Road from Long Point Drive to Winningham Lane

COUNCIL DISTRICT A

TYPE Street

START Fall 2022

COMPLETION Winter 2023

DETAILS After evaluating traffic data, this section of Bingle Road will be converted from four lanes (two in each direction) to three lanes (one lane in each direction with a center turn lane). Bingle Road will not be reconstructed but will be restriped to the new configuration. Of note, a portion of this project is in Spring Valley Village jurisdiction (south of the Spring Branch creek to Winningham Lane). This is a joint effort between the City of Houston and Spring Valley Village.

General Project Information

What is the purpose of this project?
The lane reconfiguration is intended to improve safety and traffic operations on Bingle Road. The existing four-lane, undivided configuration creates dangerous conditions for people traveling along the corridor. Three lanes with a center turn lane will allow turning vehicles to pull into a designated turn lane so that traffic can flow. This configuration also makes it easier for pedestrians to cross the street, because there are fewer lanes to navigate.

How long is this project going to take to complete?
The project is estimated to take approximately one month once construction starts.

    There are two parts to the Bingle project: one in the City of Houston and one in the adjacent City of Spring Valley. Both parts will be implemented by the same pavement marking contractor simultaneously. The contractor is ready to proceed in the Houston section; however, they are waiting for Spring Valley's contract approval. They are hopeful that Spring Valley City Council will approve their contract this month, and in the best-case scenario, they could begin and finish all related work in November 2023.
