The main drivers of the project are traffic delay, crashes, and increasing need of accessibility. The study area includes a 7.5-mile east-west and 4-5 lanes principal arterial which experiences rapid population expansion and job increase. The posted speed limit is 35 mph in Rosenberg, 40 mph from Miles St. to 2nd St. in Richmond, and 55 mph from east of the Brazos River to Harlem Rd. The current volume is high especially at FM 359 and Harlem. Peak hour LOS at intersection is currently C but expected to be lower as jobs increase. The railroad crossing near the Oak Bend Medical Center also leads to slow traffic. Driveway density from Barmore Rd to Harlem Rd is 45/mi. Crashes are overall significantly higher than statewide average.
New traffic signal, upgrade signal equipment, optimize traffic signal timing, extension of left/right turn lane, add raised island to delineate roadway, realign roadway, turn lane closure, add new left/right turn lane, construct signalized intersection with channelization, construct new intersection, raised median with left turn lane, pavement striping, and other minor driveway modifications.
The study purpose is to reduce of crash rates, reduce motorist delay, enhance land use, and preserve property values along the corridor. Sufficient baseline information are collected and analyzed to provide opportunities along the corridor for better connectivity, accessibility, circulation, and friendliness for pedestrians and cyclists. Enhanced aesthetics is also one of the goals aiming at stimulating economic vitality.

While the corridor is not a designated bike corridor, field observation demonstrates the need to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclist. Most of the sidewalks do not meet current ADA standards and what sidewalks exists are in poor condition. The project seeks to create a high comfort and safe multi-modal environment by increasing design standards, implementing gap filler sidewalks, and repairing sidewalks in poor conditions. In addition, implementation of access management will create a safer environment for pedestrians as a whole.
