​​​CYPRESS - Major road construction is expected in Cypress over the second half of 2016, focused largely on projects between Beltway eight and Mueschke Rd.​

The $1.3 billion project to widen Hwy. 290 from Loop 610 to the Harris County line is picking up steam in Cy-Fair.

The entire project is expected to be finished by the end of 2017.

Funded by TxDOT, the overall widening project involves building one additional general purpose lane in each direction as well as one single-barrier separated high occupancy vehicle lane in each direction. 

When complete, there will be five mainlanes in each direction from Loop 610 to Hwy. 6, four mainlanes from Hwy. six to the Grand Parkway and three mainlanes from the Grand Parkway to the Harris County line.​
