Lone Star Road Construction, LTD has begun construction on Central Avenue overpass spanning the Manchester rail yards immediately east of IH 610-East Loop at Texas 225 in Houston. The Central Avenue overpass, a TxDOT project, will be 1,674 feet in length upon completion, with the total length of the project at slightly more than a 1/2-mile.
The design of the overpass includes the creation of two parallel frontage roads between Waller and Manchester Streets north of the Port Terminal Yard. Prior to building the Central Avenue overpass, the first stage of the project will involve construction of a new Lawndale Connector. All work on this project will be completed by June 2008.
