FRIENDSWOOD, Texas The Texas Department of Transportation s contractor is currently working to repave all lanes of FM 518 (also known as Friendswood Drive) that spans from approximately FM 2351 to Castlewood Drive in Friendswood.

This project also consists of replacing car sensors for traffic signals that are located underneath the roadway.

While rehabilitation has already begun on the northbound lanes of Friendswood Drive, more asphalt will be laid down on this side of the road before this section is complete.

This includes adding another layer of asphalt on the outside lane that already contains one layer of new asphalt. The striping that currently exists along the new asphalt in the northbound lanes is temporary and will be covered with another layer of asphalt before completion.

The project is scheduled for completion in approximately six weeks, weather permitting. Periodic alternating lane closures are expected throughout this project.

Please exercise caution when driving through the area. For more information, please contact the City of Friendswood at 281-996-3201.
