The scope of this study is 2.8 miles of State Highway (SH) 36 from US 59 to Farm-to-Market (FM) 2218 in Rosenberg. This segment is part of a larger SH 36 corridor improvement effort.

Current Conditions

SH 36 in this area is currently a 2-lane undivided roadway.

Proposed Improvements

TxDOT is proposing to widen to a 4-lane roadway with median openings and turn lanes. The existing right-of-way is 100 feet in width and the acquisition of an additional 10 to 75 feet of approximate right-of-way is needed to accommodate the proposed improvements.

The purpose of these improvements is to:

  • Improve the existing roadway facility and bridges with a safe, modern facility that meets current design standards
  • Improve capacity to increase mobility given projected population growth in the region; specifically north of the project corridor in Fort Bend County and south of the project corridor at the Port of Freeport in Brazoria County
  • Improve safety by adding additional capacity during hurricane evacuations
  • Improve intermodal relationships with the Port of Freeport


This study is a partnership between TxDOT and the Federal Highway Administration.
