Progress To Date
4.1 Implement the 288 Corridor Master Improvement Plan
PEDC, the City and other partners continue to implement improvements in the 288 Corridor Master Plan. PEDC has expended approximately $4.6 million of the estimated $19.5 million project. Plant procurement is ongoing and median improvements were completed in June 2020. Construction plans for the final phase are being finalized and the bid will be advertised in the summer of 2021.
4.2 Implement the SH 35 Corridor Redevelopment Plan
PEDC continues to actively work on multiple projects in Catalyst #2 Business Park North and is planning for development in Catalyst #5 Business Park South. Rice Drier Road reconstruction was completed in 2020, and Halik Street is in design for reconstruction in 2021.
The former gas station at the corner of Broadway/FM 518 and State Highway 35/Main is under redevelopment. Scooter’s Coffee, a national coffee chain, is constructing a store on the 20,000 square-foot lot.
4.3 Develop the FM 518/Broadway Corridor Development Plan (SH 288 to SH 35)
The Broadway Corridor Development Plan was completed in May 2020 and PEDC and the City are working with TxDOT to provide input into their design process for the reconstruction of Broadway/FM 518 from Main to SH 288 in line with the plan’s recommendation.
4.4 Beautify Pearland’s corridors and gateways
A gateway sign near the city limits on Scarsdale/Yost Rd was completed in September 2020. An entry feature at Shadow Creek Parkway and FM 521 is under design and new entryways are planned along the 288 corridor.
