  1. Miss Holt,

    A couple of years Harris County, through eminent domain, bought my neighbors’ home. This was done because of an extension planned to link East Mossy Oaks with West Mossy Oaks. This would allow traffic to flow from the Exxon-Mobil/Southwestern Energy complex to Gosling Road. Then, in spite of all the construction projects completed, Harris County has done nothing.

    Have you guys heard of any plans to complete this project.

    Thanks, Ken Davis
