Driving Texas Roadway Projects with TxDOT

Driving Texas Roadway Projects with TxDOT

Jones|Carter has been awarded three noteworthy TxDOT projects over the last several months. We are honored to lead these projects as the prime firm. Our goal is to not only strengthen our relationship with TxDOT but also to utilize our local knowledge to provide the communities where we live and work a safe and efficient driving experience throughout these projects.

Traffic Engineering—TxDOT Statewide
As Project Manager, Colby Wright, PE, PTOE will lead the team in providing traffic engineering services for a statewide indefinite deliverable contract. The team will provide services to help ensure the safety of the traveling public through traffic studies and engineering design projects including signal warrant analyses, speed zone studies, capacity analysis studies, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), roadway design, traffic signal design, signing and striping. The team’s goal is to help improve traffic conditions, reduce congestion, and provide an overall safe and efficient experience for the Texas drivers.

US 69—TxDOT Beaumont District
Rob Maxwell, PE will serve as Project Manager on this 12.3-mile roadway widening project, which will widen US 69 from a two-lane undivided to a four-lane divided roadway to facilitate hurricane evacuation routes. The Big Thicket National Preserve is within the project limits and will require corridor-specific aesthetics and environmental sensitivity. Our team will partner with the residents to ensure they are engaged in the changes within their community.

FM 70—TxDOT Corpus Christi District
Tim Newton, PE is Project Manager on this critical 24-mile project. This hurricane evacuation route for Nueces County comprises more than 20 miles of roadway on FM 70 and approximately 4 miles on SH 286. Our goal is to improve the reliability of the roadway by implementing changes that will reduce the existing crash rate, which is higher than the state average and relieve the flooding that is a common occurrence during heavy storms. J|C will begin by conducting an initial feasibility study. Our next steps will be determined by the outcome of that study.
