A five-year, $210 million project to expand state Highway 146 got off to an almost inconspicuous start Wednesday with the closure of a beloved boat ramp, some signs announcing ongoing construction and a few trucks parked along the road.

Oh, oh. Get ready for feuds when the Kemah police really get pro-active with moving traffic, escalating what they’ve done in the past.

Kemah police will amplify traffic problems on SH146 in Seabrook and on SH96 by SH146 in League City when they keep traffic moving through Kemah on SH146. They aggressively focus their traffic control on Kemah without regard to anyone else. That’s how they roll, and it’s been going on for a while. They probably have a plan in place for the upcoming traffic nightmare.

Seabrook police are fairly oblivious to traffic problems on SH146, now traffic is going to get worse. The League City police’s presence is blatantly absent from the part of SH96 in question, now they’ll get a wake up call from disgruntled League City drivers.

Best advice might be to stay away from the Kemah bridge for the next few years, like it was when it was a drawbridge!

This would be about as bad a year to have to do a hurricane evacuation ias in ‘05 for Rita when the braintrusts closed off access to side roads and trapped a few million in creep along traffic, where it moved at all.
Can’t fix that....just elect them to higher office......🙄🐖🥜
