With officials still targeting late 2017 for the completion of the Hwy. 290 expansion project, major initiatives will be underway at several Cy-Fair segments throughout 2016. Upon completion, the highway will be widened from Loop 610 out to the Grand Parkway.
Last summer, the Texas Transportation Commission awarded the final two construction contracts for projects A and B from FM 2920 to Bauer Road. Funding from Proposition 1, which was passed by Texas voters in November 2014, allowed the start of construction on those two projects to be accelerated by as much as two years, according to officials with the Texas Department of Transportation.
TxDOT hosts monthly meetings on Hwy. 290 open to the public on the first Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. at Houston First Church of God, 14400 Hwy 290.
