Harris County Precinct 4 is in the design phase of a project to widen Riley Fuzzel Road from a two-lane asphalt road to a five-lane concrete paved section with improved drainage between Elm Street and the Hardy Toll Road. The project will realign the corridor to remove sharp turns, close the railroad crossing at Caroline Street and open a new crossing north of Riley Fuzzel Road. Precinct 4 sought authorization from Harris County Commissioners Court on Sept. 10. Following approval, the bid and award phase will take approximately three to four months until construction can begin, Rocchi said.
