The Texas Department of Transportation is preparing to install medians along FM 1092 from Hwy. 59 in Stafford to Hwy. 6 in Missouri City.

Construction will begin in January and last until July, according to a presentation by Assistant City Engineer Jeremy Davis during the Nov. 1 City Council meeting. Crews will be directed to start working at FM 1092 and Hwy. 59, and they will make their way south through Missouri City, Davis said.

TxDOT awarded a $2.4 million construction contract to SCR Civil Construction in September, according to city documents.

Since TxDOT first brought the project to Missouri City city staff in November 2020, the city has held public meetings to receive community feedback on the project. Several intersections of concern have been addressed during the process. However, even as the project went out to bid, a couple Missouri City City Council members objected to it.

Davis said Missouri City Public Works staff will continue to work with TxDOT to address any lingering concerns. City staff is also slated to meet with TxDOT for a preconstruction meeting in December.



Following the median installation project, TxDOT is set to begin a project to resurface FM 1092. That project will bid separately in March 2022, with construction tentatively expected to begin in July 2022, Davis said.

Council Member Floyd Emery asked if TxDOT could coordinate the asphalt replacement project with the median installation to reduce traffic disruptions.

“This is going to be a nightmare when they put in those medians as far as traffic goes,” Emery said. “I don’t know if there’s any way they can coordinate the overlay with the installation of the medians so that we could minimize the major impact on traffic flow.”
