Richmond Commission Receives Tenth Street Mobility Project Update

(RICHMOND) – The Richmond City Commission recently received an update on the FM 762/ Tenth Street Extension project, a partnership between the City of Richmond and Fort Bend County.

Cobb Fendley Project Engineer, Mahmoud Salehi, presented an engineering study report evaluating three alignments for this mobility project which provides unimpeded access from US 90A to north Richmond communities. The study also evaluated right-of-way expansion restraints, socio-economical environmental impacts, and existing mobility alignments for an overpass over the existing UPRR tracks.


The three alignments evaluated were Second St. from US 90A to Clay Street, FM 762/ Tenth Street Extension from US 90A to Clay Street, and FM 3155 (Collins Road) from US 90A to Clay Street.


The FM 762/ Tenth Street extension alignment has been recommended as the most viable to provide an improved roadway which serves as a safer, higher capacity north- south corridor enhancing mobility to the growing area, Richmond residents, Fort Bend County, and the traveling public.


Officials say this alignment will also enhance the safety and quality of life for north Richmond residents.


“The FM 762/ Tenth Street alignment is the most logical for a railroad overpass since 30 of 42 of proposed right-of-way properties have been acquired for the initial Tenth Street extension alignment,” said Salehi.


Additionally, the proposed roadway from Clay Street south to the railroad tracks has been under design and is at a 95 percent completion stage.


This recommended alignment will be incorporated into the City of Richmond and Fort Bend County’s Thoroughfare Plans and is planned to continue north with a bridge over the Brazos River and ultimately connect to SH-99/ Grand Parkway in the future.
