A better commute is just a project away. The SH 288 Toll Lanes Expansion aims to implement improved functionality of 10.3 miles of SH 288, from US 59 to the Harris County line at Clear Creek. By constructing new toll lanes, installing toll infrastructure and establishing toll operations and maintenance, SH 288 will handle traffic better than ever before. We are committed to maintaining direct and frequent communication with all those who live, work and travel along the SH 288 corridor. We will maintain complete transparency with all of our customer groups and stakeholders, including local business and representatives of affected jurisdictions, government agencies, and other transportation partners. We are committed to our community’s safety and the free flow of information throughout this process of growth. The SH 288 expansion includes three major interchanges: • Beltway 8, which will include (8) new direct connector/ramp bridges • Loop 610, which will include (8) new direct connector/ramp bridges • The Texas Medical Center, which will include (2) new direct connector/ramp bridges Blueridge Transportation Group (BTG) has been commissioned with the design-build, financing, operating and maintenance of a portion of State Highway 288 (“SH 288”) located in Harris County, Texas, including: • The construction of four tolled lanes, eight new tolled direct connectors at Beltway 8, and new tolled direct connectors near the Texas Medical Center and related facilities along a portion of State Highway 288 from U.S. Route 59 to a point just south of the Harris/Brazoria County line. • The design, development and installation of an Electronic Toll Collection System on the Toll Lanes in the Project Segments. • The implementation of certain utility adjustments in the Project Segments. • The reconstruction of all eight IH 610 Interchange direct connectors and implementation of certain utility adjustments in the existing lanes.
