At a mobility and transportation committee meeting Aug. 10, Kent Clingerman, a community aide with the Community Assistance Department of Harris County Precinct 4, outlined three ongoing transportation projects in Tomball.

1. Cypress Rosehill Road

In partnership with Harris County Precinct 3, improvements are being made to Cypress Rosehill Road from Seidel Cemetery Road to about 1,500 feet north of FM 2920. Precinct 4 is responsible for the improvements made north of FM 2920, Clingerman said. The new section of roadway will transition into the existing Decker Prairie Rosehill Road and will include a west connection to Waller Tomball Road. The project was awarded in March and is expected to be completed by May 2022, according to Clingerman.

Cost: $3.9 million

Funding sources: Harris County Precincts 3 and 4

2. Hufsmith Road at Burroughs Park

Precinct 4 is improving Hufsmith Road between Burroughs Park and Creekside Lakes Drive. This includes the addition of a secondary Burroughs Park access road as well as two to three traffic signals added to this stretch of road, Clingerman said. Clingerman said the project was awarded in December 2020 and is expected to be completed in January 2022.

Cost: $4.3 million

Funding source: Harris County Precinct 4

3. Spring Creek Greenway

In addition to road improvements, Precinct 4 is working to complete the Spring Creek Greenway. Upon completion, Clingerman said the greenway will “connect the dots” between parks along Spring Creek with 42 miles of continuous trails stretching from I-59 in Kingwood to Spring Creek Park in Tomball. Clingerman said having the trail will help with mobility and transportation, recreation, nature conservation, and flood control. There is no timeline for the project, but most of the right of way has been acquired, Clingerman said.

Cost: TBD
