The Hardy Toll Road which provides great access to Spring Texas residents to Loop 610 will be connected to downtown Houston. Yesterday the Houston City Council approved an agreement with Harris County which will build and pay for the road.
Construction of the $200 million project is scheduled to begin in August 2009 and to be completed by the end of 2011. An estimated 32,000 vehicles are expected to use the Hardy Toll Road extension. Officials have envisioned extending the Hardy Toll Road into downtown Houston since it opened in June of 1988.
We, as residents of Spring Texas, currently enjoy a manageable commute into downtown of between 20 and 45 minutes. But we are just like everybody else of always wanting to decrease our commute time.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
