Transportation projects that will shape Houston in 2018

Houston’s bumper to bumper traffic is one of the city’s biggest drawbacks, but things are expected to clear up a bit in 2018.

Dozens of transportation projects across Harris County are expected to be completed in 2018, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Using TxDOT’s interactive project put together a list of projects, with a budget of at least $3 million, that are slated to (hopefully) finish by the end of the year.

 Projects range from widening highways to maintenance or repair.


The biggest winner this year: Highway 290. Multiple segments of the Austin-to-Houston highway are getting a facelift and being widened to accommodate more traffic.
