There is still one very small segment of Tuckerton left to construct within Towne Lake in order to connect Barker Cypress to Fry. With this, drivers in the area who would like to go to Fry from Barker Cypress will have to weave through Towne Lake a bit to get to this new segment of Tuckerton.
This opening is great news for parents and students in Towne Lake who attend Smith Middle School or Cy-Ranch High School. Previously, they had to take a very round about trip down south to Longenbough to get to these schools. Now it is a pretty straight shot.
Next on the Barker Cypress to Fry connector street list is Cypress N. Houston which will help cut some commute times for people in Bridgeland, Blackhorse Ranch, and Cypress Creek Lakes. Unfortunately, I have not heard any estimates on when construction on that segment may begin. My guess is that it is still several years out.
This new section of Tuckerton will help facilitate Phase 3 of Cypress Creek Lakes which will be the last 700 acres to be developed in that subdivision. Here is a press release about the opening from Mischer, the developer of Cypress Creek Lakes:
Opening of Tuckerton Road Adds to Convenience of Cypress Creek Lakes
Construction is complete and Tuckerton Road is now open in Cypress, Harris County. Tuckerton Road is a now a major thoroughfare connecting Fry Road to Greenhouse and is a major, new east-west connector for travelers.
Tuckerton Road also runs through Phase 3 of the master-planned community of Cypress Creek Lakes. This new artery will make it easier for Cypress Creek Lakes residents to get to Cy-Fair ISD’s Berry Center, Lone Star College, retail centers and more.
“With the completion of Tuckerton Road, between Fry Road and Greenhouse, Mischer Development is excited to begin construction on Phase 3 of the remaining 700 acres of Cypress Creek Lakes. Cypress Creek Lakes will have over 1100 lots and 100 acres of commercial land, available for development opportunities. Metropolitan Baptist Church purchased 100 acres located on the Southeast corner of Fry and Tuckerton. We look forward to having new lots, and our new recreation facility mid-year of 2012,” according to Randy Corson, Senior Project Manager for Mischer Development Company.
This road completion allows travelers an artery between Fry Road and Barker Cypress Road by turning on Greenhouse and West Roads. Eventually, Tuckerton will go straight through to Barker Cypress and connect with the portion of Tuckerton that extends east to Queenston Boulevard.
Located less than two miles from US 290, Cypress Creek Lakes features new homes priced from the $230,000s to the $600,000s by Perry Homes, Coventry Homes, and Meritage Homes. School-age children at every grade level attend schools right in the community, which is located in the Texas Education Agency Recognized Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.
