The study’s purpose is to improve safety, connectivity and congestion in response to development in the area, which is expected to increase.

The proposed build alternative project limits are from Bellfort Avenue in Houston to FM 528 in Alvin. The proposed construction limits are from Dixie Drive, north of Bellfort Avenue in Houston to SH 35 (Alvin Bypass), north of Steele Road in Alvin.  The total length of the proposed tollway is approximately 18.5 miles.

Proposed Improvements

The proposed build alternative involves the construction of a new location four to eight-lane tollway from Houston to Alvin loosely paralleling Mykawa Road and the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe railway. Other improvements include:

  • Mykawa Road reconstruction and reconfiguration to a four-lane boulevard/frontage road
  • Full interchange with Beltway 8 (Sam Houston Tollway)  
  • High capacity transit preserve from Bellfort Avenue to McHard Road
