The expansion project in this section was completed in late 2017. The interchange at SH 121 (Rayburn Tollway) fully opened a little later. The expansion project created two reversible HOT lanes, added collector-distributor lanes between Bush Turnpike and SH 121, and added two general purpose lanes north of SH 121.
