Construction on Segment 2 of a project to widen Holderrieth Road from two lanes to four lanes began March 6, according to Harris County Precinct 3 officials.

The project, estimated to cost $27.1 million, is anticipated to be completed in the second quarter of 2024.

“This will help mobility greatly in the area [and] provide everyone another access going east and west,” Tomball Mayor Lori Klein Quinn said in an interview.

Segment 1 of the project is completed and consists of all of Holderrieth Road west of Hwy. 249, according to Harris County Precinct 3. Segment 2 spans from Hwy. 249 to just a bit west of Hufsmith-Kohrville Road, and Segment 3 will go from Hufsmith-Kohrville Road to Sir Alex Drive.

Quinn said the project will help manage traffic in the area.

“Once it is completed, I think it will help move the traffic in Tomball much better,” Quinn said.
