Cullen Boulevard Improvement Project Update

September 2020 Update


It’s started! We are excited to announce the start of construction for Phase II of the Cullen Boulevard Improvement Project (Segment ‘B’ - Wheeler to I-45).  The official start date was Monday, September 14, 2020.  The contractor will be mobilizing the first few weeks.

The construction schedule has a 32 month duration with an estimated completion date of May 2023. A Traffic Control Plan is in place.  This will assure the safety of both pedestrian and vehicular traffic during construction.  Harris County’s goal is to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction and access to Entrance 14 as much as possible.  However, the County anticipates a multi-month full road closure from Wheeler to Cougar Place. Harris County and the contractor are committed to working with the University to minimize disruptions and schedule closures around university activities. 

Once Phase II is complete, the transformation of Cullen Boulevard will be a welcoming and amazing gateway to the University at both the North and South Entrances to the Campus.
