FM 1774 railroad overpass in Magnolia slated for early wrap up in 2019


James Construction Group is constructing a $23.3 million railroad overpass in Magnolia, providing a direct route for drivers on FM 1774 over the Union Pacific Corp. rail line. The TxDOT project extends from FM 1486 to just north of FM 1488. The overpass was originally scheduled to be complete in the third quarter of 2019. However, the completion date has been moved up to the second quarter of 2019 as crews are anticipated to finish the project earlier than expected.
Timeline: December 2016-second quarter 2019
Cost: $23.3 million
Funding source: TxDOT
