tomball tollway section 1

houston, Texas

Aguirre & Fields recently worked alongside another consultant to complete Section 1 of the Tomball Tollway for the Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA), designing the Traffic Control Plan, drainage and storm sewer design, bridge layout and structural details for the Northpoint Drive overpass, six ramp plan and profiles and 12 retaining walls.  Additionally, drainage had to be coordinated between Section 1 and Section 2, TxDOT, and the SH 99 contractor.

COST SAVING MEASURES:

At 95% in the design process, HCTRA asked Aguirre & Fields to split the project into two separate bid packages.  Traffic control had to be reviewed to accommodate the different bid packages. Even with this challenge, Aguirre & Fields completed the project on time and on budget.
