Hardy Toll Road Central Greens Ramp to Close for Reconstruction
The Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) will begin work to retrofit and replace tolling equipment at the Central Greens Boulevard exit ramp. The ramp will close down completely on November 26, 2007, while crews place EZ TAG equipment in the previously dormant ramp. The work is scheduled for approximately 45 days and should reopen by the end of January 2008. During construction, drivers will be detoured to the northbound Rankin Road exit. Rankin is tolled and costs $0.75 cash or EZ TAG.
When re-opened, the Central Greens exit ramp, which has been non-equipped and free as a result of 2001's Tropical Storm Allison, will be a $0.75 EZ TAG-only toll. Those drivers wanting to pay cash can continue to use the Rankin Road exit.
