Our clients include private developers, counties, cities, contractors, engineering, and architectural firms.
American Airlines is building a new five-building office complex on their 300-acre campus off Trinity Boulevard in Fort Worth. The new buildings are expected to house more than 7,000 administrative employees. The campus is slated to be complete by summer of 2019 and American Airlines is targeting a LEED Gold certification.
Jones|Carter partnered with Montgomery County to reconstruct two miles along Lone Star Parkway from TX-105 to FM 149. The project was necessary to help mitigate traffic congestion and improve mobility in the region. In 2015, Montgomery County passed a Road Bond Package featuring Lone Star Parkway as a significant project. Innovative construction methods were necessary to keep the project within budget and on schedule.
Jones|Carter is the design engineer for the improvements to the intersection of State Highway (SH) 29 and County Road (CR) 200 and Loop 332 in Liberty Hill in western Williamson County. This project will improve safety and mobility helping to remove bottlenecks and relieve overall congestion in the area. This section of roadway is high profile as it serves as a major route to citizens in the western part of Liberty Hill, as well as the school system. The average daily traffic in this intersection exceeds 21,000 vehicles.
Jones|Carter was selected by the TxDOT Tyler District to perform traffic projections and analyses for a high growth corridor identified for potential roadway improvements. The projections were used to assist the Tyler District in planning future improvements for 20 intersections along 10.5-miles of US 271 and South Loop 485 in Smith and Gregg Counties.
Jones|Carter has been selected by the TxDOT San Antonio District to provide engineering services for a proposed 120-foot right-of-way on FM 1560 from SH 16 to FM 471 in Bexar County. The need for an expansion to help alleviate traffic issues and congestion is evident as the roadway is currently too narrow to handle the existing traffic volumes.
Jones|Carter performed engineering services for Harris County’s Traffic Signal Replacement Program. The project was funded through the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program and was designed according to Harris County and TxDOT standards and specifications.
Jones|Carter performed the mobility plan for the Springwoods Village development on northwest corner of IH 45 at SH 99 (Grand Parkway) in Harris County.
Jones|Carter was selected by the TxDOT Fort Worth District to perform speed zone studies on more than 320 miles of roadway in Parker, Hood, Johnson, Tarrant, and Jack Counties. The work was performed as part of Work Authorization #1 under a statewide contract to perform traffic engineering studies and design for TxDOT.
Jones|Carter is performing traffic signal design services in eight counties for the TxDOT Amarillo District. The work is part of Work Authorization #5 under a statewide contract to perform Traffic Engineering Studies and Design for TxDOT.
J|C will be providing traffic engineering services for a statewide indefinite deliverable contract for the Texas Department of Transportation.
The Red Oak project reconstructed a key roadway in one of north Houston’s busiest corridors, doubling the lanes of traffic.
Traffic control and mitigation of this heavily congested area was a chief challenge on this project. Relocating Centerpoint Energy transmission lines underground as well as relocating a large underground AT&T duct bank were also challenges that if not handled appropriately would have significant impacts on the schedule.
