STARR COUNTY BCAP
Rio Grande City, TX - This project was funded by TxDOT's Border Colonia Access Program (BCAP) which provides financial assistance to counties for roadway projects serving underdeveloped border colonia communities. This multi-phase project involved the design of a new two-lane roadway including curb and gutters that replaced a gravel road.
The project included design of a new storm drain facility and a relocation design for several utilities that required adjustment. AASHTO guidelines for vertical curves were followed in the design process due to the steep terrain in this region of Starr County.
