Study Description

The overall project scope includes widening and improving FM 521 (Almeda Road) from BW 8 in Harris County to FM 2234 (McHard Road) in Fort Bend County.

Current Conditions

FM 521 is currently a two-lane rural undivided roadway.

Proposed Improvements

  • Reconstruct and widen FM 521 to a four-lane divided urban roadway from BW 8 in Harris County to south of FM 2234 in Fort Bend County.
  • Construct proposed "grade separations" on FM 2234; this means FM 2234 will be elevated and cross over FM 521 at the Missouri Pacific Railroad crossings

The purpose of the project is expected to improve safety, enhance mobility and accommodate current and future growth, and improve railroad/local traffic crossings.

Information about the concurrent project on FM 521 from FM 2234 to SH 6 in Fort Bend County can be found on the project page.
