TGC developed a pre-engineering report of the FM 830 corridor for Hughes Corporation and the City of Conroe. The FM 830 corridor is located within and on the periphery of the City of Conroe and will be adjacent to a large Hughes Corporation mixed use development. The widening of the facility is a priority of both entities. Although funds have been pursued for the project in the past, the applications have been unsuccessful. The pre-engineering report validates the assumptions of the project sponsors that the project will provide great mobility improvements at a positive cost-benefit ratio.
The FM 830 pre-engineering report defined the following: project purpose, project need, the (monetized) benefits that will result from the project, and line item costs required to implement the project. The report also provided a desktop EA/ESI for the project corridor.
