Updates Announced About the “Five Corners” Realignment in League City
Posted In: Commercial | League City News Posted by Pam Moore on 08/19/2016


In an effort to keep our readers up-to-date on the most current news concerning the “Five Corners” Realignment Project in League City, Brockway Realty is reporting the following information:

League City ~ Mark Rohr, League City’s City Manager, released his City Manager Update on August 19, 2016. The following information about the “5-Corners” Realignment was highlighted:

Five Corners project update:  Transportation has been a major topic of discussion for some time, particularly, the area known as Five Corners where FM 518, FM 270 and FM 2094 intersect.  City staff has begun executing plans to alleviate traffic congestion around Five Corners with construction expected to begin in September.” …

Mr. Rohr’s entire update report can be found on the City of League City website.

The following is excerpts from The Daily News article written by Tom Bassing “Initial work on Five Corners realignment to begin next week, was published August 19, 2016:  

”…

Motorists as soon as next week can expect to see initial work begin on a project to ease traffic through the notorious Five Corners, City Manager Mark Rohr said Thursday. “We’ve completed the purchase of the former Mattress Firm and property for about $2.2 million,” he said.

That completed the property-acquisition phase the project, which was first discussed in 1992. Five other properties surrounding Five Corners have been condemned and purchased through eminent domain and will provide space needed to reconfigure the traffic chokepoint, at which motorists often experience lengthy delays.”

“Rohr said the state is picking up 80 percent of the anticipated cost for construction, which is projected to come in around $2.35 million. The Texas Department of Transportation is overseeing the request for proposals from contractors, the opening of bids and the construction itself.

“Right now, TxDOT is expected to let the contract in February 2017,” Smith (Earl Smith, Director of Engineering) said. “We’re looking at an eight-month schedule for construction.” When the project is completed next October or November, weather permitting, traffic flow through Five Corners is expected to ease motorist angst, which is particularly acute during the morning and evening rush hours.”

“Motorists in the next few weeks can expect to see crews removing trees and demolishing the structures that now stand in the way of the project.

Plans call for a new right-hand turn lane off FM 518 onto a bypass that will connect it to FM 270.

“This is going to increase the efficiency of the entire intersection,” Smith said.

He said the engineering design phase included numerous public hearings and various studies and was designed to enhance traffic flow for at least a 20-year period.”

The article in its entirety, can be found on the Daily News website and Facebook page.
