If using a mobile GPS device in your car or on your phone, please be aware that many of them will not be able to locate either "Spur 399" or the street address.  You may want to try variations of the street name, such as "Texas Highway 399", or "Texas 399", or "Highway 399".  If none of those work, try entering it as the intersection of "Medical Center Drive and Gateway Blvd.".  Please note that many GPS units may direct you to "Spur Lane", which is nowhere near CHEC.
