Spring Cypress construction

The stretch of Spring Cypress between I-45 and Lexington that heads to the shop and Old Town Spring is under construction. To avoid the backed up traffic, try taking Louetta Road east to Lexington. Turn left onto Lexington to Spring Cypress and turn right. The shop will be on your left, next to the Shipley Donuts and across the street from the Valero gas station. If you have any questions about taking alternate routes to get here, please call the shop!
