Sam Houston Tollway Widening: Houston, Texas

This project involved the widening of the Sam Houston Tollway (Phase 2 portion) between US 59 South and SH 288. The approximately 4-mile-long project called for the addition of two new lanes in each direction, for a total of eight lanes when completed. The addition of the new lanes doubled the capacity of the road and significantly improved traffic flow and enhance mobility in the area. In addition to the road widening, the main lane toll plaza was reconfigured to include three dedicated EZ TAG electronic toll lanes and three dedicated cash toll lanes. Entrance and exit ramps were renovated and each feature a dedicated EZ TAG lane and a dedicated cash lane.
