SH 288 Managed Lanes

Project consisted of adding managed lanes to SH 288 from CR 58 to the Brazoria County/Harris County line at Clear Creek.

Terra Associates completed three traffic signal designs along Discovery Bay and Hughes Ranch Road. The elevated “T” ramp signal created several design challenges that required extensive coordination among several consultants.

The signal design includes video detection, signal pole and pad mounted cabinets, and fiber interconnect. Terra also completed the SW3P plans for the entire 5.09 miles. The design included multiple traffic control scenarios.

Coordination with the City of Missouri City and other utility companies that have utilities within the project limits was required throughout the duration of the project.
