The HCTRA system covers approximately 83 miles of roadway in the Houston/Harris County area.

GCE was contracted by HCTRA to design the addition of a lane, the widening of the bridge structure at Kempwood Drive, an intersection improvement at Westview Drive, Hammerly Blvd., Kempwood Drive, and Clay Road, and an addition of an exit ramp at Clay Road on Sam Houston Tollway.

Work included drainage analysis, pavement design, traffic control plans, traffic signal modification, signage and pavement marking, bridge foundation and structural design, Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SW3P), and construction staging. Work also included coordination with agencies such as TxDOT for project drainage, and traffic control.
