HCTRA Ship Channel Bridge

HCTRA began the design of the Sam Houston Tollway Ship Channel Bridge in 2015. The goal of the program is to meet the growing mobility needs in the region.

This project has required extensive collaboration between public agencies to achieve successful development. The widening of the Sam Houston Tollway between SH 225 and IH 10 will consist of the construction of a new bridge span across the Houston Ship Channel providing four toll lanes and full shoulders in each direction.
