A stretch of Bissonnet Street between Kirby Drive and Buffalo Speedway is going to be a mess for drivers for nearly a year.
Construction crews have begun an 11-month-long project tearing up the roadway just south of US-59 so major improvements can be added along that route.
From bus shelters to adding storm drainage, sidewalks and pedestrian lighting, the new features aim to make the road more friendly for all commuters. The medians and greenery will be preserved.
With 400 feet of street already demolished, drivers are being cautioned as they navigate the area.
