Jones Road Extension

Jersey Village, Texas

This extension of Jones Road south of US 290 to FM 529 was planned to improve traffic flow in northwest Harris County and support future mixed-use development in Jersey Village. The project presented multiple coordination challenges. Greenfield construction through former pasture and forest crossed pipelines, a railroad, and wetlands, the latter requiring a Corps of Engineers individual wetlands mitigation permit. US 290 and FM 529 intersections required coordination with the Texas Department of Transportation; the US 290 intersection also required Harris County Toll Road Authority coordination for future toll road construction considerations. The interlocal agreement between Jersey Village and Harris County dictated precise record-keeping for reimbursement.

IDS successfully navigated the project through all coordination challenges while designing the roadway, underground storm sewer, drainage/detention, lift station, force main, sanitary sewer, and waterlines. We also guided Jersey Village on easement issues and dealing with property owners.
