It is our full intention to keep the forested surroundings that gives Woodforest its name. The Johnson Development Corp. has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to preserve the trees that define Woodforest, ensuring that this most-coveted feature is found not only in esplanades, forest buffers and floodplain bottomlands, but also within actual homesites, so buyers can enjoy both new homes and old-growth trees.
The new Fish Creek Thoroughfare and Lake Creek bridge opened to traffic in May 2009. Fish Creek is a major roadway through Montgomery County - a north-south roadway connecting FM 2854 and FM 1488, both of which provide access to Interstate 45. Fish Creek Thoroughfare also feeds into FM 2978, providing access to Woodlands Parkway and FM 2920, two more routes accessing Interstate 45. The extension of Fish Creek Thoroughfare over the railroad tracks at FM 2854 opened in February 2011 with a new bridge over the railroad tracks that connects Fish Creek Thoroughfare to McCaleb Road allowing instant access to Highway 105.
With the opening of the overpass, drivers now have new north-south access from Highway 105 in Conroe to FM 2854 to Fish Creek Thoroughfare to FM 1488/2978 south to FM 2920 in Tomball.
