Please be advised that the City of Seabrook will be actively monitoring the heavy equipment haul expected to take place late TUESDAY evening, August 6th, into the early hours of WEDNESDAY morning, August 7th. The transport of the equipment may have a significant impact on traffic along Red Bluff Rd. between Kirby and State Highway 146, in addition, both the north and southbound traffic along SH 146 will also be impacted between Repsdorph Rd/E. Meyer Ave. to Port Road. Portions of Red Bluff Rd. and SH 146 will be closed in both directions to allow the equipment to move through our city. The equipment is being delivered to the Bayport Container Terminal located on Port Road. Motorists should expect delays during this period and seek alternative routes.
While this route may not require CenterPoint to disconnect electric service to Seabrook residents, a power outage may still occur. Our neighboring cities along NASA Parkway west of Kirby are expected to experience power outages during the move. CenterPoint will be keeping their Power Outage Tracking system up to date throughout the move and will be proactively informing its customers of possible disconnects.
The heavy equipment being hauled is 27 feet tall and approximately 25 feet wide. The transport company has hired traffic professionals to remove and replace some of the intersection infrastructures along the route so that the equipment can pass. In addition, the transport vehicles will be accompanied by 20-30 police officers to assist with traffic and road closures.
Time of arrival in Seabrook may be subject to change. The equipment will only be transported at night and should it be delayed we will post updates to our social media networks. For additional updates please follow the City of Seabrook on Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor.
