UPDATED: Harris County Proposition 1 PASSES with 73% of voters in favor of Bond Proposition.
Are you tired of the road congestion on Gosling? A Yes vote for the Harris County Proposition 1 “Road Improvement Bonds” could help reduce the congestion. Harris County has four different bond proposals on the November 3rd ballot totaling $848 million.
Proposition 1 is a $700 million bond referendum for road improvements of which $60 million is designated for subdivision street repair and replacement. The $700 million in transportation funding would be split between Harris County Precincts 1 – 4 with 30% being made available to Precinct 4.
Harris County does not provide a list of specific road projects prior to bond elections because if the projects were listed then the bonds could only be used on those projects. There are several major projects that could be funded through the bond money including 1) widening Gosling Road from 2 to 4 lanes from Mossy Road to Creekside Forest at an estimated cost of $15.1 million, 2) Gosling Road bridge expansion at an estimated cost of $7 million, and 3) Kuykendahl Road bridge expansion at an estimated cost of $3.6 million.
The traffic on Gosling Road is horrendous. These road projects are desperately need to improve the mobility in the Spring Texas area. The opening of the Grand Parkway will improve east – west mobility in the area. But we are also in dire need of improvements in north – south mobility.
According to Transportation Advocacy Group Houston Region, a Yes vote for Proposition 1 will NOT increase the Harris County property tax rate.
A Yes Vote for Proposition 1 is a vote for faster commute times.

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! 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
