Description: 

The proposed improvements upgrade the existing US 59 to interstate standards by
converting it to a controlled access highway with frontage roads and two mainlanes in each
direction. Access to the highway would be through frontage roads with designated entrance
and exits ramps. Overpasses are proposed at Red Road and south of the San Jacinto/Liberty
County line. Additional bridges would be constructed over several creek crossings. No
temporary or permanent easements appear to be required at this time. Total new ROW
required is approximately 120 acres. The proposed project would include:
 Construction of four 12-ft mainlanes (two lanes in each direction) with 10-ft inside
and 12-ft outside shoulders;
 Ramps consisting of one 14-ft lane with 2-ft inside and 12-ft outside shoulders;
 Construction of NB and SB frontage roads each with two 12-ft travel lanes, 4-ft inside
and 8-ft outside shoulders;
 ROW widths for the length of the proposed project vary from 321-ft to 544-ft;
 Safety lighting would be included on the entrance and exit ramps;
 Drainage would be handled through open ditch drainage; storm sewer may be
necessary in the Cleveland area but that will be determined in PS&E including
proposed detention ponds; and
 Frontage road shoulders would accommodate bicycles and the Liberty County portion
of the project will include sidewalks.
