HCTRA Projects – SH 249 (Tomball Tollway)
The SH 249 (Tomball Tollway) project will provide three toll lanes in each direction within the existing SH 249 corridor. The current frontage roads will remain in place and will not be tolled. The project is proposed to be constructed in two phases. Phase I, located in Harris County, consists of three toll lanes in each direction from just south of Spring Cypress Road to just north of FM 2920. Phase II will extend the toll lanes north of the bypass to the Harris County line at Spring Creek and points beyond in Montgomery County. Phase II will require partnership with Montgomery County to achieve successful development. The estimated cost of the project within Harris County is $335 million. Construction of Phase I has begun and is expected to be completed in 2015.
