Cullen Expansion- FM 518 To Beltway 8


Recommended Posts

Received an update from the city of Pearland:


Cullen Parkway reconstruction (FM 865) between Broadway (FM 518) and Beltway 8 will begin in April. The joint TxDOT and City of Pearland 18-month project includes major improvements to drainage and city utilities; widening Cullen to four lanes with raised medians; intersection signals installed at Freedom, Hughes Ranch Road, Hawk Road and the future McHard Rd.; and a 'shared-use' path along the west side of Cullen from Broadway to the new Dawson High School.

Starting on the north end of the roadway, the major portion of the work will occur between Broadway and the future McHard Road intersection, including installation of a major storm-drain trunk line, water main, four lanes of pavement, and a new bridge over Hickory Slough. North of Clear Creek, the paving surface will be widened to add a right option lane at the Beltway access roads, and the left lanes will be restriped to add a second left turn lane.

The traffic control plan allows for traffic in both directions during the construction period, but travelers are strongly encouraged to refer to the attached exhibit and seek alternate routes from Broadway to Beltway 8 (ie SH288, Mykawa Rd, SH 35, Pearland Pkwy or Dixie Farm Rd) to avoid delays due to shifting traffic patterns and work areas. The City does not recommend the use of routes through residential neighborhoods, as these have lower speed limits and will be in use by school buses and other school related traffic.

Drivers are asked to exercise extreme caution in the construction area, as paving surfaces may be rough or uneven, temporary lanes will be narrow, equipment and personnel will be in close proximity to the travel lanes, and work areas and traffic direction signage will be constantly changing.

Can anyone find a link to an online rendering of the new Cullen Parkway development? I have not been able to find one online anywhere (including the City of Pearland's site). I live right off of Cullen west of the new Dawson High School and am really curious how this is expected to turn out. The detention pond north of the McHard expansion looks huge.
