FLYOVER SH242 TO I-45 SOUTH ABOUT TO OPEN

Moments ago Montgomery County opened the SH 242 Fly-Over that will help Montgomery County residents cut their drive time. The Flyover which has been under construction for several years will take motorists from northbound I-45 to westbound SH 242/College Park without the long waits at the SH 242 traffic light at the I-45 feeder. It will also make it easier for Lone Star College students as the ramp ends at the entrance to the Lone Star Campus.
The  flyover from I-45 North to SH 242 west is now open. The other Flyover which will help East Montgomery County residents traveling on SH 242 and going south on I-45. Those residents in peak traffic times spent several light cycles just to get to I-45 . With the new westbound to southbound flyover they will miss that light and traffic completely. That section will be opening at approximately 5pm as crews are finishing the striping process.
A warning though. Lone Star College students who normally traveled west on SH 242 from East Montgomery County or from the north will not be able to turn right into the campus on Maverick Drive. They must use the next entrance.

The Catch the Flyover will be a toll road starting July 6.
