Since City Council approved a contract for the project Oct. 8, the Texas Department of Transportation has started work on the intersection of I-45 and League City Parkway, which is part of the I-45 widening project through the city. As a result, more vehicles are using Turner as a cut-through road, making it difficult to close roads in the area to improve Turner and Butler.
Instead, for $150,000, the city will expedite two lanes of the new Ervin Street extension to Hobbs Road, which will allow for two-way traffic in and out of nearby subdivisions by April 2020. The Turner and Butler project will be done in phases without lane closures until the Ervin project is done. At that time, the intersection of Turner and Butler will be closed, and Butler between Turner and League City Parkway will be closed.
