Officials with Harris County Precinct 3 have started work on a second project to widen a relatively new stretch of Cypress North Houston Road at the same time another project is coming to a close.

A project to widen Cypress North Houston from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane boulevard between Greenhouse Road and Cypress Bend Drive is in its final stages, said Jennifer Almonte, the field engineer on the project, in an email. Workers are placing hydromulch and backfill before the project will be completed, she said.

Meanwhile, construction is now underway on a separate project to widen Cypress North Houston between Greenhouse Road and Barker Trace Drive at the cost of $2.5 million. Crews are finishing drill shafts to widen an existing bridge, and excavation is underway for roadway sections, Almonte said.

Cypress North Houston was extended from Barker Cypress Road to Fry Road as a two-lane roadway by Precinct 3 in 2016 in a partnership project with development company Caldwell Cos. and the home builder Taylor Morrison, which both have home communities in the area. Officials with Precinct 3 said they monitor traffic counts on new roads after they are built to determine when they need to be widened.

The widening between Greenhouse and Barker Trace is expected to be completed around the second quarter of 2020, at which point Cypress North Houston will be a four-lane boulevard between Barker Cypress and Fry roads.
