The alignment for the SH 105 bridge replacement project involves replacing the existing SH 105 bridges across the Navasota and Brazos rivers and Coles Creek in Grimes, Brazos and Washington counties.
The bridges are on a new roadway that requires approximately 89.4 acres of additional right of way. Federal bridge funds will pay for the expected $25 million cost, and construction began in October 2014.
It will improve safety along SH 105 by relocating the bridge over the Brazos River to a more stable location. The project also realigns and replaces functionally obsolete bridges that do not meet current standards for safety at the Navasota River and at Coles Creek.
Construct three bridges to replace existing bridges:
The realignment of SH 105 covers 1.06 miles east of FM 159 to 0.03 miles east of FM 1155, which spans across portions of Brazos, Grimes and Washington counties. SH 105 would shift to accommodate these bridge replacements.
