County pieces together Spring Creek Greenway amid construction delaysConstruction on the Spring Creek Greenway—which will include 12.5 consecutive miles of green space between Humble and Spring at buildout—was delayed due to heavy April rains.

Currently, a 10-mile stretch of the Spring Creek Greenway connects Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center to Dennis Johnston Park.

The greenway was projected to be complete this summer before an already-constructed bridge near the SuperTarget store on Townsen Boulevard collapsed, said Mike Howlett, special projects coordinator for the Precinct 4 Parks Department. A new timeline will be announced when the bridge is redesigned.

The project is beneficial to residents who live along the Spring Creek Greenway, Howlett said.

“It’s a fact that if you live along a greenway corridor, your home value goes up,” he said. “It’s a fact that if people go out and use the trail, whether that’s walking or jogging or bicycling, there are increased health benefits.”

Additional miles of trail will connect the master-planned community of Springwoods Village, which is south of The Woodlands, to
the system.
