April 2019 Transportation Update: Gosling Road Widening, New Traffic Signals along Cypresswood Drive


Spring, Texas – April 9, 2019: Harris County is working on several road projects in the Spring area to improve traffic flow and street safety. Here is what Spring residents should know about these projects:

GOSLING ROAD WIDENING: Gosling Road is being widened from a two-lane, asphalt roadway to a four-lane concrete roadway with a drainage system and widened bridge at Willow Creek. The road widening affects Gosling Road from its intersection with West Mossy Oaks Road to the intersection of West Rayford Road. Allgood Construction is slated to begin the $9.4 million project March 21 and complete it by Aug. 13.

CYPRESSWOOD TRAFFIC SIGNALS: New traffic signals are being installed along Cypresswood drive between Hickory Twig Way and FM 1960 East. The new lights will be installed at Hickory Twig Way, Whitewood Drive and Lockridge Drive. Median modifications, turn lane improvements and improvements to other traffic light systems along the route will also be conducted during this $6.4 million project which began Feb. 11 and is slated for completion in June 2020.

LOUETTA/STRACK INTERSECTION: Harris County just finished plans to upgrade the intersection of Strack Drive and Louetta Road. Design costs were about $341,000 and the new plan calls for construction to begin in April and be completed in full by May. Improved traffic signals will be installed at the intersection and Strack Drive will be converted to a three-lane roadway with dedicated left-turn and right-turn lanes
