Fallbrook Entrance and Exit Ramps to Become EZ TAG Only
Beginning October 17, 2009, the Fallbrook entrance and exit ramps on the Sam Houston Tollway will temporarily become single EZ TAG only lanes. Construction of these ramps is part of the Sam Houston Tollway widening project from Fallbrook to Gessner.
Temporarily changing the configuration of these ramps will help speed construction and provide a safer commute for drivers while the work is completed. Currently, both ramp locations consist of two lanes - one Automatic Coin Machine (ACM) / EZ TAG lane and one Full Service lane. Once construction is complete, both ramps will consist of two wider, separately dedicated lanes for EZ TAG customers and cash customers.
Southbound cash customers who normally enter the Sam Houston Tollway at Fallbrook will need to use the North Gessner entrance or enter the toll road after US 290 at W. Little York. Northbound cash customers will need to use either West Road or Gessner to exit the Sam Houston Tollway.
Construction of the Fallbrook entrance and exit ramps is expected to be complete by January 5, 2010. The widening of the Sam Houston Tollway from Fallbrook to Gessner is anticipated to be complete in Spring 2010 and will increase the corridor from three to four lanes in each direction.
