Roundabout Construction Closes Tyler Parkway


If you're heading over to the north end of town, you might want to add a few minutes to your commute time.

The Home Depot contractors are closing Tyler Parkway east of Highway 87 for five days.

The closure will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, April 21 and 22, and during the same hours Monday through Wednesday, April 25-27.

"The purpose is to speed up construction of the roundabout," said public works engineer LaRon Garrett. "By doing this (The Home Depot) can do all the work in that area without having to do it in separate phases."

Garrett said roadwork pending includes curbing, roadway subgrades and paving.

Motorists can still get to The Home Depot by taking West Houston Mesa Road off Highway 87. Meanwhile, all properties along Tyler Parkway will still have access from Highway 260.

"We appreciate the public's cooperation in avoiding that area until we get it done," said Garrett.
