And just like that, getting around Woodforest is even easier.
A second bridge over Lake Creek opened in December, providing four lanes of north and south access along Fish Creek Thoroughfare just south of Woodforest.
Spanning 1,300 feet, the bridge was a two-year, $5.53 million project funded in the Montgomery County 2015 road bond package. Smith & Company and Vulcan Materials Company were the contractors on the project.
Timing for the enhanced access couldn’t be better — especially with our quickly growing roster of commercial enterprises. Conveniences such as Harvest Market and Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine — both newly open — are bringing more people into Woodforest than ever before.
The Lake Creek bridge was the final phase of a $17.3 million expansion of Fish Creek Thoroughfare included in the bond package.
Other improvements to Fish Creek Thoroughfare include an overpass over FM 2854 and nearby railroad tracks.
