The Ervin Street connector is four-lane arterial roadway that will connect Calder Road to Hobbs Road. Two lanes are already open after League City in late 2019 paid $150,000 to expedite the project to offer residents an alternative way around League City Parkway to the north, an area seeing heavy traffic due to a Texas Department of Transportation project at the League City Parkway and I-45 intersection. As soon as the two lanes opened in mid-April, nearby Butler Road and Turner Street were closed to be widened.
