Barker Cypress and West Road site is located almost in the center of
the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District with three (3)
major thoroughfares feeding the area: the Northwest Freeway (290),
Barker Cypress and West Roads.

Ph.D., president of Cy-Fair College. "We have not held back on
any of our planning but clearly this is one of our significant
milestones to bring us to the opening of the college in 2003."
