TxDOT is proposing to improve SH 146 with the construction of four main lanes within the existing right of way (ROW) between BS 146 and Ferry Road in the city of Baytown, Harris County, Texas, a distance of approximately 1.45 miles. The purpose of the proposed project would be to improve mobility by providing continuous main lanes between BS 146 and Ferry Road.

Current Conditions

SH 146 (BS 146 to Ferry Road) is currently a six-lane divided roadway with a grassy median.  The existing roadways are the future frontage roads of SH 146.

Project Background

  • The purpose of the proposed project is to address the capacity and design deficiencies by developing SH 146 into a continuous major thoroughfare up to current freeway design standards between BS 146 and Ferry Road.

Proposed Improvements

  • The proposed project would construct four additional main lanes within the existing grassy median and construction of two 10-foot shoulders
  • The existing six-lane divided roadway would become the proposed future frontage roads.
  • The proposed project would include drainage and other improvements within the project limits, as well as adding a grade separation to the main lanes of SH 146 over Alexander Drive.

Additional Information

The estimated construction cost is approximately $16.2 million. There would be no displacements of residences or commercial structures. The proposed project would be constructed entirely within the 300- to 336-foot existing ROW and would not require the acquisition of additional ROW.

Next Steps

  • Evaluate public hearing comments
  • Finalize environmental review
  • Complete final design
  • Construction will begin when funding becomes available
