TxDOT projects to finish its construction project on Highway 288 sometime this fall. This newly added road will run alongside Highway 288 and stretch from Magnolia Parkway to Broadway Street.
TxDOT broke ground on this new construction project last October. They had originally projected to finish construction by December, but they have been running smoothly, and ahead of schedule.
This expansion project has been a collaboration between TxDOT and the city of Pearland. The city of Pearland contributed $6.5 million toward the expansion.
