LyondellBasell’s PO/TBA construction project located at its Channelview site has reached peak manpower and as a result, the site is taking proactive measures in conjunction with Constables from Precincts 2 and 3 to manage the associated high-volume traffic activity.
The following traffic management solutions are set to begin on June 14, 2021 and will continue through October 2021 when construction manpower will decline.
In the morning from 4:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., the intersection of Wallisville Road and Sheldon Road will become a four-way stop with flashing lights. Four police officers will be stationed at this intersection to direct traffic, controlling the flow of incoming workers and non-plant traffic. Temporary lighting is being placed at the Wallisville/Sheldon intersection for added safety.
In the afternoon from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the existing LyondellBasell plant entrance/exit at 2502 Sheldon Road, along with the intersection of Wallisville and Sheldon Roads, will become three-way and four-way stops with flashing lights. Additionally, to mitigate the flow of exiting workers onto Sheldon Road, the site has created an additional exit on Sheldon from the main construction parking lot.
Two police officers will be positioned at each intersection and exit, with a total of six police officers manually managing traffic flow in this area during high-volume afternoon traffic. As needed, the police officers will occasionally stop the flow of construction traffic leaving the site to prevent congestion for the other routes.
We apologize for the inconvenience this temporary project-related traffic may cause, but we believe these solutions will help with alleviating traffic issues along Sheldon and Wallisville Roads in the mornings and evenings. If you have any questions or concerns about this traffic control plan or any traffic related issues in this area, please let us know.

Thank you in advance for your patience as we continue to progress on this project.
