Congratulations to Chambers County for winning an ASHE Houston Project of the Year Award at the society's gala in January. The FM 1409 roadway extension project won in the Under $20 Million category.
DEC was recognized for its engineering work and Texas Sterling Construction was honored as construction contractor.
The new roadway, which included 4 miles of 2-lane undivided highway and a 6-span bridge over I-10, was designed to relieve congestion by providing a continuous link from Old River-Winfree to FM 565 west of Cove. It improves safety, mobility and accessibility in and around Chambers County and supports economic growth.
