Precinct 3 makes safety improvements at Research Forest-Grogan’s Mill intersection | Precinct 3

Contrary to assertions by The Woodlands Township Board Chairman Gordy Bunch and media reports, there are no plans to revisit a recently completed study regarding the Research Forest Drive-Grogan’s Mill Road and Lake Woodlands Drive-Grogan’s Mill Road intersections.
In addition, there are no construction plans or funding to move forward with an overpass or underpass at this time – or in the near future.

The final improvement analysis report of the intersections, as well as other smaller intersections in that study area, was recently completed. In full transparency and to ensure the updated report is available to all interested residents and governmental entities, all study documents, including the final analysis, are posted at https://www.precinct3.org/research-forest-at-grogans-mill-intersection-study-documents/.

The recently completed study, conducted by engineering firm Strand Associates Inc., was started in 2019 and jointly funded by the offices of Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley and Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack.

The two commissioners, Chairman Bunch and Shenandoah Mayor Ritch Wheeler agreed to the independent study, which included updated traffic projections, after The Woodlands Township board refused to support a proposed underpass at the Research Forest Drive-Grogan’s Mill Road intersection. The goal was to provide an independent study that would consider all options concerning mobility and safety upgrades that would meet the projected level of vehicle traffic at those two major intersections as well as surrounding minor intersections for decades to come.

Due to the COVID pandemic and associated shutdowns, including travel, all aspects of the study, communications and final report were not completed until 2021. In April, prior to Strand submitting the final report, the engineering firm presented its findings during a joint meeting with all interested parties present, including Noack, Riley, Bunch and Wheeler.

In years past, recommendations called for a Research Forest Drive-Grogan’s Mill Road overpass, which was opposed by the City of Shenandoah. In 2018, a study conducted by engineering firm BGE recommended the underpass. After the township board and some local residents expressed opposition to the underpass, Montgomery County opted not to submit the project to the Houston-Galveston Area Council for funding, which could have saved local taxpayers millions of dollars in construction costs.

Bleyl Engineering recently released another study addressing an at-grade proposal at the Research Forest-Grogan’s Mill intersection. That information also will be posted to the site with the Strand study.

So far, however, Precinct 3 is not confident that any of the proposals meet the desired goals of not only moving more vehicles through – but doing it in a safe manner – at an intersection that consistently logs some of the highest numbers of motor-vehicle accidents in The Woodlands-Shenandoah area, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

With no imminent plans to move forward with major construction at the Research Forest Drive-Grogan’s Mill Road intersection, Precinct 3 Commissioner Noack’s Office has worked with Strand Associates and the Montgomery County Traffic Operations Department to implement measures intended to improve safety at the intersection in the meantime.

Those recent improvements include:

-Installing signal heads for each lane
-Adding yellow reflective borders to signal heads
-Installing flashing “Wrong Way” signs
-Installing supplemental “Do Not Enter” signs
-Installing “One Way” signage
-Adding supplemental lane designation signage
-Placing additional pavement markings for lane designation
-Updating signal timing
-Trimming back vegetation for better visibility

In keeping with representing the will of the majority of residents, Commissioner Noack reiterated that there are no plans to construct a grade separation of any kind at either of the two major intersections in question without residents’ approval. Furthermore, Commissioner Noack will not move forward with any major modifications that don’t improve both safety and mobility.

Precinct 3 funds $4 million of Gosling Road construction project in The Woodlands

Gosling Bridge project coming soon!

The project falls within the boundaries of The Woodlands Township, which benefits from the costs being spread among property taxpayers across Montgomery and Harris counties instead of falling solely on the shoulders of The Woodlands property owners if it were a city.

Montgomery County Commissioners Court on Tuesday approved payment of $4 million to Harris County for the Precinct 3 share of the Gosling Road widening and bridge construction project over Spring Creek.

09/13/2021

Update from the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management:

Rain from Tropical Storm Nicholas has already started to fall throughout the county. Tropical Storm Nicholas has winds near 60 mph and is currently centered southeast of Brownsville. The current forecasted track has Nicholas moving northeastward toward the Houston Metro/Montgomery County region today and tomorrow before it moves off to the east and out of the area by Wednesday. Any change to the current track or forward speed of the storm will require forecast changes.

Based on the current path and timing of the storm, Montgomery County is forecasted to receive widespread rainfall in the range of 4 to 8 inches over most of the county with isolated higher totals. Areas in the southeast portion of the county in Precinct 4 could see rainfall totals climb to as much as 10 inches with isolated higher amounts. There is the potential for tropical storm-force winds to impact areas of the county with wind speeds of 39 to 57 mph as some of the rain bands pass through the county.

We can expect rainfall on and off throughout the day on Monday with increasing intensity as we move into Monday evening. The heaviest impacts from this storm are expected to occur overnight Monday and during the day on Tuesday.

The Montgomery County Emergency Operations Center remains at Level III (Enhanced Readiness) and will be closely monitoring the impacts of the storm throughout the county. Additional updates related to the timing and projected impacts of the storm will be distributed later today.

Bond refunding to save Montgomery County $1.6M in interest

Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack along with John Robuck with BOK Financial presented the information to the court Tuesday. Refunding is the process of retiring outstanding bonds at maturity by using the proceeds from a new debt issuance.

“This is really a continuation of the debt monitoring that I enjoy doing,” Noack said. “This is another good opportunity for us to save the taxpayers a little money.”

Since taking office in 2013, Noack has worked with financial representatives to reduce debt for the county totaling just over $40 million in savings.

Montgomery County commissioners are moving forward with refunding a series of bonds that...

First human case of West Nile virus in Montgomery County confirmed, second pending | Precinct 3

The Montgomery County Public Health District confirmed the first human case of West Nile virus of the 2021 season late Thursday afternoon. The patient, a female in her 60’s from the 77365 zip code, is still hospitalized as of this morning.

There is a second pending case of West Nile virus, we are saddened to announce however that that patient is now deceased and we are still awaiting confirmation on the cause of death. This patient was a male in his 80’s from the 77382 zip code.

Commissioner Noack’s Mosquito Abatement Team continues to monitor all areas of Precinct 3 for signs of West Nile virus activity in the local mosquito population and performs treatment in affected areas as necessary. This season, 79 mosquito samples collected from Precinct 3 and adjacent areas have tested positive for the West Nile virus. The mosquito abatement team has conducted over 130 treatment missions, treating over 25,000 acres (cumulatively) in response to these positive samples.

Commissioner Noack asks court to consider a one-time payment to eligible Montgomery County first responders | Precinct 3

Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack has proposed a one-time payment for Montgomery County first responders. Commissioner Noack requested that the item be placed on the Sept. 14 Commissioners Court agenda.

“COVID has stretched emergency services since the pandemic began,” Commissioner Noack said. “This is an excellent way to recognize the women and men for their outstanding response to the community during these difficult times.”

The one-time payment for eligible first responders would be paid out of the nearly $59 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds that were allocated to Montgomery County in May. Eligibility, based upon ARPA, and the dollar amount will be addressed by the Commissioners Court on September 14, and is likely to apply primarily to the unincorporated areas of the county. As cities and other entities that received ARPA funds directly would likely be excluded.

“I am very hopeful that the court passes this unanimously,” Commissioner Noack said.
