Repair of Stubblefield Bridge, which was heavily damaged by Hurricane Harvey in September 2017, is expected to be completed by December, according to officials with the U.S. Forest Service.
National Forests and Grasslands in Texas Forest Supervisor Eddie Taylor announced that Central Federal Lands Highway Division will manage the design and repair of Stubblefield Bridge and the pedestrian bridges to pre-storm conditions so they will reopen to vehicle and pedestrian traffic by December.
“Stubblefield Bridge is an important roadway not only for the Sam Houston National Forest, but for nearby residents in Walker County who used the bridge daily,” Taylor said. “We want to thank U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady and Walker County officials for their help in getting these repairs expedited.”
The scope of the repairs include reestablishment of the pedestrian and vehicle bridge structures to pre-storm conditions, roadway embankments, parking areas and debris removal.
