Nearly two years after the opening of Phase I, construction will begin this month on the next phase to bring Hwy. 249 into Montgomery County.

Officials with the Harris County Toll Road Authority, Montgomery County and the Texas Department of Transportation spoke Friday during a luncheon hosted by the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce at Lone Star College-Tomball. The project, which is broken up into four phases is a joint project between HCTRA, TxDOT and the Montgomery County Toll Road Authority.

Last April marked the one-year anniversary of the completion of Phase 1 of the Tomball Tollway, a 6-mile tolled portion of Hwy. 249 from Northpointe Boulevard to FM 2920. When complete, the roadway will run through Magnolia on up to Hwy. 105 near Navasota, earning the nickname, the Aggie Expressway, for its close proximity to College Station.

Plans for the Tomball Texas Railroading Heritage Museum are moving forward following approval of a master plan during the Jan. 16 Tomball City Council meeting.
