RINER Performs Geotechnical Engineering Services on US 90 in Fort Bend County

May 10, 2023 – Riner Engineering, Inc. is currently working with the TXDOT Houston District to conduct geotechnical borings/pavement cores along US 90A in Fort Bend County Texas. RINER performed a total of 29 pavement cores/soil borings along 14,400 linear feet of US 90 collecting geotechnical soils and asphalt pavement data. RINER is working closely with TXDOT to provide geotechnical engineering data which includes both field and lab testing.

This project consists of a 6.8 mile span of US 90A in Fort Bend County that runs from State Highway (SH) 6 to Loop 762.

The current roadway has 4 lanes and has an average right-of-way width of 175 feet. Drainage is primarily open ditches with short section of curb-and-gutter between Cunningham Creek drive and SH 99.

Proposed improvements between SH 6 and SH 99 include:

  • Expand to 8-lane divided roadway with raised media
  • Curb-and-gutter drainage
  • About a half acre of right-of-way would be required at various points along southern edge of existing right-of-way

Proposed improvements between SH 99 and Loop 762 include:

  • A 6-lane divided roadway with raised median
  • Existing drainage to be maintained

No commercial or residential displacements are anticipated.
