RS&H is providing CEI services for the SH 99 median widening project from FM 1093 to I-10. As Houston’s third and outermost loop, SH 99 acts as a vital pass through for motorists traveling each on I-10 toward Brazoria, Galveston, and south Harris County. SH 99 is ranked #63 on Texas’ Most Congested Roadways list published by the Texas Transportation Institute in 2021. The 6.5-mile reconstruction consists of widening from a four-lane divided highway to a six-lane divided highway, adding a center cable median barrier, and modifying several ramps. With 130,000 motorists traveling SH 99 each day, the project will increase capacity, improve mobility, and accommodate future growth.
The project team provided an unmatched level of commitment, expertise, and experience crucial to the execution of this unique project in a condensed nine-month timeline. The entire team worked tirelessly to deliver this unique project and restore a vital transportation network to the city.
The Lesner Bridge is arguably Virginia Beach's signature bridge and boasts an average annual daily traffic (AADT) count of over 20,000 vehicles. The City of Virginia Beach set a goal to produce a bridge with a 100-year lifespan that incorporated new aesthetics and safety measures.
