Mykawa Dead Zone

Recommended Posts

Will this portion of Mykawa ever be extended north to meet Spur 5 (near existing Beekman Rd.)?

It's only a 1 mile segment - does anyone know why it was left out? (utility easement/ROW issue?)

Funding. Here's a description of what is eventually planned:

Revisions to the Mykawa Alternative

The following section illustrates the changes that were made to the previously proposed

Mykawa Corridor based upon public input.

The Revised Mykawa Alternative is

proposed to connect at Spur 5 adjacent to

the University of Houston and to continue

southward as a high-speed corridor

terminating at the Alvin Bypass. Between

Spur 5 and IH 610, the alignment is mostly

within existing TxDOT Right-of-Way (ROW).

It is anticipated that additional ROW would

be required to upgrade the IH 610

interchange. A bridge, beginning north of

Kuhlman Gully, would be needed to carry

the tollway over the Griggs Road, Long

Drive, and IH 610 intersections.

South of IH 610, the roadway would run along the east side of the existing Mykawa

Road and Burlington Northern and Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad tracks, utilizing existing

TxDOT ROW. Existing TxDOT ROW ends directly south of Dixie Dr.
