Pearland Parkway Extension From Dixie Farm to CR 129 (FM 2351)
From Dixie Farm to CR 129 (FM 2351)
Brazoria County has experienced tremendous growth in the past two decades and it is anticipated to continue to have extreme growth over the next few decades. It is forecasted that Brazoria County will increase in population by 50% by 2040. Brazoria County must respond to this intense growth by developing our planned thoroughfares throughout the county to meet current and future needs. The Brazoria County Thoroughfare Plan shows the extension of Pearland Parkway from Dixie Farm to CR 129 as a planned major thoroughfare. This project is also included in the H-GAC’s 2035 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and in the City of Pearland’s Comprehensive Plan and Capital Improvement Program. The City of Friendswood Thoroughfare Plan shows the extension of Friendswood Lake Boulevard from FM 523 to CR 129 to align with this Pearland Parkway Extension. This project is needed to increase mobility in the area and reduce congestion on other high-volume thoroughfares currently supporting this traffic demand.
Pearland Parkway, from Dixie Farm Road to CR 129, is a proposed extension of the existing four lane divided roadway that will provide connectivity through the southeast portion of Pearland. The proposed roadway will be 9,900 linear feet of 4-lane concrete boulevard including curb and gutter, raised medians, storm sewers, detention, and sidewalks. The intersection of the Pearland Parkway Extension and CR 129 will require a proposed traffic signal to manage the turning movements. Also, the existing traffic signal at the intersection of Pearland Parkway and Dixie Farm will be updated to accommodate the new roadway geometry and increased turning movements. The Pearland Parkway Extension will be constructed directly west of the Pearland Regional Airport and located within the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) of the City of Pearland. The proposed section requires a 120-foot ROW width and the alignment traverses 10 real estate parcels. This proposed project also aligns with the City of Friendswood’s proposed project to extend Friendswood Lake Boulevard from FM 523 to CR 129. These two projects together provide a major thoroughfare between Pearland and Friendswood and greatly increase mobility in this area.
The purpose of the project is to respond to the growth in the area by adding capacity and connectivity. This additional route of egress from suburban planned neighborhoods will increase mobility by reducing congestion and decreasing travel time on nearby existing thoroughfares. This project will run parallel to Texas Highway 35 and provide additional connection to two east-west thoroughfares, Dixie Road and CR 129. It will significantly improve access to Pearland Regional Airport and it connects the public to over 1500 jobs located within a ¼ mile. Sidewalks are included in this project to allow pedestrians to safely travel along this corridor. It is essential for Brazoria County to expand and build thoroughfares to increase mobility and create safe conditions for drivers and pedestrians throughout the county.

Brazoria County is proposing a 10' sidewalk along the proposed roadway to allow for pedestrians and bikes to safety travel along the corridor.
