US 290 Reconstruction from I-610 to Beltway 8
Western Assoc. of State Highway and Transportation Officials > Quality of Life/Community Development -Western > Large Project
US 290 from Interstate 610 to Beltway 8 used to be known as one of the most congested roadways in the state of Texas. Serving as a major connection to the city of Houston, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) knew it had to address the issue and provide a wider variety of transportation options for the growing community. This $1.7 billion project reconstructed 11 .5 miles of roadway, created bike paths, trails, and sidewalks – all while improving overall safety for all travelers. Throughout the entire process, TxDOT kept the community informed on the design, development, and the construction progress on the project.
