Texas 242 Project

Traffic is seen along Texas 242 west of I-45, Friday, July 22, 2022, in The Woodlands. The Texas Department of Transportation inches closer to a $40 million project that would widen Texas 242 from FM 1488 to Interstate 45, state Rep. Steve Toth said the solution is not more lanes through The Woodlands but rather a loop around the community. The project would add a lane of traffic in each direction, include 12-foot travel lanes with 10-foot shoulders, open ditch drainage, three detention ponds, a pathway along the north side of the road and potential sound wall for residents along the project’s route.
