Spring Cypress at I-45 will undergo major upgrades over the next few months to
accommodate existing traffic and prepare for growth along the Grand Parkway.
The project includes widening Spring Cypress from four asphalt lanes to five concrete lanes
from Lexington to Wunche Loop, complete with left turn lanes and upgraded traffic signals at
the Wunche loop. Concrete lanes are more durable than asphalt, require less maintenance, and
last up to four times longer.

For years, woodworkers at Mangum-Howell Center have donated handcrafted items to
benefit their local Precinct 4 community center. But now, some members are expanding their
charity work to their local communities and beyond.
“Some of these guys are involved in disaster relief and travel all over helping others,” said
instructor Richard Chancey. “Others are really involved with the local community. That’s the
type of people we have here.”
