Friendswood and League City will share some of the cost of adding a traffic signal at the intersection of Grissom Road and Bay Area Boulevard after each approved an agreement at a recent meeting.

The full story

A study was done recently following an “elevated” number of crashes at the intersection, which suggested the need for a traffic signal, according to Friendswood city documents.

Friendswood city officials said June 27 there is not yet a timeline for the project. A follow-up email on July 2 from League City's Engineering Department suggested something similar.

The project will be managed by Harris County Precinct 2, but the unknown surrounding the timeline in part has to do with how long it will take to get the traffic signal poles, which historically has taken 12 to 16 weeks, according to the email.

However, recent work along League City Parkway saw that time jump to about 40 weeks, officials said.

"The general thought is the timeline ... could take approximately one year," according to the email.

What else?

Each city will pay $125,000 for the project, with the rest set to come from Harris County, Friendswood city documents show.

Friendswood approved the agreement June 3 while League City approved it May 28, city documents show.
