US90A to FM1640
The main drivers of the project are traffic delay, crashes, and increasing need of accessibility. This study section includes a 1.3-mile north-south four-lane minor arterial. The posted speed limit is 30 mph near US 90A and increases to 35 and 45 mph torwards FM 1640. It connects to US 59 to the south. The current volume is high especially at FM 359 and Harlem. The existing LOS of this study section is currently D. Southbound afternoon peak hour LOS is E. The BSNF Galveston railroad is parallel towards south within half mile. Driveway density from US 90A to FM 1640 is 63.1/mi. Crashes are also 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 multimodal 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.
