Spring, Texas – October 30th, 2016: After months of patiently waiting, road closures, and hundreds of orange construction barrels, the Northbound HOV lane will officially open for use beginning Monday morning, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

“We believe this will enhance mobility for all who travel this sector of I-45 during peak traffic times.” Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack

According to Noack’s office, barricades and debris along the 16-mile carpool lane connecting Spring to Conroe will be removed over the weekend.

“Over two weeks ago the IH-45 southbound HOV was completed,” said Commissioner Noack. “The addition of the northbound HOV lane will help alleviate traffic build-up and reduce commute time for residents. I urge residents who travel the IH-45 corridor to take advantage of this carpool lane.”
