Traffic congestion expected at LyondellBasell Bayport Underwood Plant

LyondellBasell’s Bayport Underwood Plant at 5761 Underwood Road in Pasadena will conduct planned maintenance work from late January to early March with nearly 900 additional workers on site at the peak. The community will see increased traffic along Red Bluff Road near its intersection with Underwood Road and on the dead-end stretch of Underwood off of Red Bluff. Beginning next Monday, Jan. 28, local off-duty law-enforcement officers will direct traffic at that intersection during shift changes, which have been staggered to minimize impact upon our community (5-7:30 a.m. and 5-7 p.m.).

The extra traffic may impact travel to and from the San Jacinto College Central Campus.

Plant management assures the public they will take steps to minimize any inconvenience to those in the area during this extended period.
