Champions Drive between FM 1960 and Cypress Creek
Champion Drive is a joint participation roadway and drainage improvement project with Champions Municipal Utility District to upgrade the two-lane asphalt roadway to a two-lane concrete pavement section with an appropriate drainage system. Precinct 4 seeks to begin construction on the project this summer.
Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvements – Spring Cypress Road Corridor between Telge Road and FM 2920

The project is part of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) managed by Harris County and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). TxDOT will fund 80 percent of the construction costs of the project and Harris County will fund the study, design, and 20 percent of the construction costs. The project is currently in the design phase.
