Curious about what ongoing and upcoming transportation projects are happening in your area? Below are four Spring and Klein based projects that include the scope, timeline, cost and funding source.

Ongoing Projects

1. I-45 bridge replacement

Work is underway on a project to replace the I-45 southbound frontage road bridge over Cypress Creek, which has been closed since March 2022 due to safety concerns. According to Bambi Hall, a public information officer for the Texas Department of Transportation, one lane of the bridge opened to traffic on March 2 followed by the remaining two bridge lanes and the I-45 southbound exit to FM 1960 on March 7.

Cypress Oaks Drive between the I-45 southbound frontage road and Enchanted Oaks Drive remains closed, and motorists are encouraged to continue detouring via West North Hill Drive. As previously reported by Community Impact, the project’s cost has increased from $6.7 million to $8.6 million due to increased material costs as well as costs to expedite the project to be completed by summer 2023 instead of March 2024.
