THE WOODLANDS, Texas The Board of Directors of the Woodlands Township have approved a mobility project to construct a grade separation at the intersection of Research Forest Drive and Grogan s Mill Road.

During 2012, the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) issued a 2013-2016 Call For Projects in the H-GAC region. With the approval of this project by the board, the plan will now be submitted to the H-GAC Transportation Improvement Program.

Here are a few reasons The Board of Directors chose to support this interchange project over other road construction needed in our area, such as the menacing 242 congestion:

- Mobility is very important to the residents and businesses in The Woodlands.

- Improvements at the Research Forest Drive/Grogan s Mill Road intersection are needed to reduce traffic congestion with the addition of commercial and residential growth as well as a result of Research Forest Drive connecting to FM 2978.

- The H-GAC TIP will seek public input regarding the project throughout the process
