Montgomery College Drive to Close???

I would 'assume' the Montgomery College Drive will have to close and a dedicated lane will continue off the ramp to gradually merge onto Hwy 242.
It doesn't much common sense to realize traffic will just back up daily to I45 from the traffic coming North. There appears to be 3 additional right turns into the Lone Star Campus from Hwy 242. Also closing this road would allow additional space for the college to expand with the expected growth of this area.

It's not a toll project

The state pays back based upon usage, but there isn't a toll, it's a flyover.....

RE: Toll road

David, actually the Hwy. 242 flyover project will be tolled, and will have no free lanes. Essentially, the county funded the project through bonds, and is being paid back by the state through the collection of tolls.

So after 10 years, when it's paid off, will it still be a toll road??? Most likely. Hmm...More taxes it looks like.

Better than nothing

Those that don't like tolls prefer taxes?

Terrible Idea

They always say that the tolls will be lifted, but once the county sees the revenue they will refuse to lift the toll, even after it is paid for. We, the tax payers, already pay taxes that are supposed to go to byuild new roads and overpasses. Then .gov waste that money on frivilous expenses, and expects us to give them even more money in the form of tolls.

I also wouldn't be surprised if the lights at the 242 and 45 intersection just happen to take a little bit longer once the toll bypass is open. They will want to make it harder for you so that you will be forced to pay their toll "tax"

Toll Road

Often when we have a toll road, toll bridge, etc., when that road or bridge is paid for, it becomes free. Occasionally, tolls are kept on if the project is a high maintenance item. A gas tax will not be lowered or cancelled.
