Cypress Rosehill road widening project continues

August 2, 2018

Motorists driving down Cypress Rosehill Road will see construction wrapping up later this year as Harris County Precinct 3 works to eliminate a turn and straighten the roadway.

Construction to widen Cypress Rosehill between Waller-Tomball Road and the Grand Parkway is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2018, said Randy Schilhab, manager of engineering for Precinct 3.

The precinct is working to make the road into a four-lane concrete boulevard from a two-lane asphalt road in three segments that stretch from the Grand Parkway to the Seidel Cemetary Road.

“Total costs for all three segments is $15,490,088,” Schilhab said.

An additional segment will be added south of a horizonal turn on Cypress Rosehill Road that will stretch all the way down to the Grand Parkway.

“Precinct 3 plans to upgrade Cypress Rosehill Road and a new section of roadway will be installed to straighten the corridor by removing a 90-degree turn,” said Pamela Rocchi, director of capital improvement projects for Precinct 4.

The current Cypress Rosehill Road that stretches east to west will be renamed Holderrieth Road, she said.

The current section of Cypress Rosehill Road south of the east-west turn is expected to be renamed Old Cypress Rosehill Road.

The Harris County Commissioners Court will host a public hearing on the proposed name change during a scheduled meeting on August 14 at 10 a.m.

The commissioners court is expected to vote on the name change at teh same meeting.
