Project Improvements include:
- Expanding the roadway from a two-lane road to a divided four-lane road
- Elevating the existing roadway and the FM 1327 intersection out of the floodplain
- Re-aligning the roadway to minimize sharp turns and improve sight distance
- Adding sidewalks and bicycle lanes
After the first open house, the project team evaluated four alternative alignments to determine the alignment that best meets the project priorities of safety, mobility, and connectivity.
Characteristics of each alternative were incorporated into an Evaluation Criteria Matrix (below) to evaluate advantages and disadvantages of each alignment. This matrix compares quantitative characteristics to objectively identify the most feasible alignment that best meets all criteria.
Evaluation Criteria Matrix
As the results of the Evaluation Criteria Matrix indicate, the Pink alignment best meets the County's priorities for this project. It provides the optimal configuration for crossing over the Rinard Creek floodplain, minimizes impacts and disruptions to FM 1327, and optimizes the long-term maintenance needs of the roadway and Rinard Creek.
