The Hwy. 288 project is on schedule to go to bid in October. The project will consist of building a northbound frontage road on Hwy. 288 and a U-turn lane at CR 59, and it will be managed by the Texas Department of Transportation.

Once the project is bid, it should likely break ground 90 days after it is awarded, based on communications with TxDOT, Pearland officials said. The project is expected to end next April.

The project is funded by the city of Pearland, the Pearland Economic Development Corp. and Brazoria County. It is expected to cost $8.44 million.
