The Texas Department of Transportation contracted James Construction Group in 2018 to improve to a section of Hempstead Road just north of I-10 inside Loop 610, upgrading the four-lane roadway to six lanes and rebuilding three railroad underpasses. It will also add sidewalks, curb ramps, storm drainage culverts, and new traffic signals at 11th and 12th streets. According to reports filed with TxDOT, the project was about 20% complete in October.
