Pearland City Council

Tuesday, October 09, 2018

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to adopt a resolution supporting the Texas Department of Transportation's submission of the FM 518 Widening Project, from State Highway 288 to State Highway 35, to the Houston-Galveston Area Council for inclusion in its 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Plan.

The project would receive 80 percent funding through federal or state funds, and TxDOT will provide the matching funds. However, local participation will be required for 10 percent of the right-of-way costs and the city will also be required to relocate any utility infrastructure within the existing right-of-way.
