Crews add a new sewer system to Spring Cypress as part of a complete renovation and expansion project.
Spring Cypress at I-45 will undergo major upgrades over the next few months to accommodate existing traffic and prepare for growth along the Grand Parkway.
The project includes widening Spring Cypress from four asphalt lanes to five concrete lanes from Lexington to Wunche Loop, complete with left turn lanes and upgraded traffic signals at the Wunche loop. Concrete lanes are more durable than asphalt, require less maintenance, and last up to four times longer.
The additional lane will also reduce traffic delays and provide more options for drivers traveling to and from Exxon Mobil's new campus along I-45. When complete, the campus will have 10,000 employees and more than 15,000 families are expected to move to the nearby Springwoods Village development.
This project is one of many Precinct 4 traffic relief projects including the expansion of Spring Stuebner, Holzwarth, Gosling and Riley Fuzzel that will be essential to navigating Grand Parkway Segments F1, F2 and G when they open in late 2015.
Other benefits include giving a boost to the local economy and revitalizing the area by giving residents better access to jobs and commercial areas.
