HCTRA is working to extend the tolled portion of Hwy. 249 between Spring Creek at the Harris-Montgomery county line and FM 2920 in Tomball, a project estimated to be complete in 2019. (Anna Dembowski/Community Impact Newspaper)
Nearly nine months after breaking ground in February, the Tomball Tollway extension is taking shape in Tomball. In addition to the tolled roadway, the Harris County Toll Road Authority project is slated to add a stormwater detention area, sidewalks, feeder roads and accommodations for a future trail system to Spring Creek Park.
