Date: Jan. 29, 2017

HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation will begin the process of converting Avenue H (US 90A) and Avenue I (FM 1640) in Fort Bend County to one-way thoroughfares. Starting Monday morning, Jan. 30, Avenue H (US 90A) and Avenue I (FM 1640) through downtown Rosenberg will each be reconfigured from the current two-way road to a one-way road.

To complete the work, a few closures will take place beginning Monday, Jan. 30.
From 8 a.m. through 5 p.m., one lane on Avenue H and Avenue I will be closed.

  • Crews will close the eastbound lane on Avenue H (US 90A) from Frost Street to Millie Street to reconfigure the roadway to accommodate westbound travel only.
  • Crews will also close the westbound lane on Avenue I (FM 1640) from Lawrence Street to Millie Street to reconfigure the roadway to accommodate eastbound travel only.

Motorists should expect delays and are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes.

Once Avenue H (US 90 A) and Avenue I (FM 1640) re-open, they will be accommodating one-way traffic only, westbound and eastbound respectively.

The changes are part of the one-way pair project in Rosenberg that will improve congestion, safety and mobility in the area.

The $4.6 million project was awarded to Durwood Greene Construction Company. Other proposed improvements include elevating the intersection of SH 36 with US 90A to cross over the Union Pacific Railroad. That portion of the project will let April 2017.
