HOUSTON, TX—August 13, 2018

Texas Dept. of Transportation (TxDOT), Blueridge Transportation Group, and Almeda-Genoa Constructors are pleased to announce a milestone has been reached: the opening of the newly-constructed direct connectors on the SH 288 Managed Lanes Project. On Monday, August 13th, the direct connectors taking drivers from IH 610 Eastbound to SH 288 Northbound, as well as IH 610 Westbound to SH 288 Southbound will be in use.

Occurring on various weekends over the summer months, the total closures are needed to provide contractors with safe and adequate space and time to complete scheduled work, while simultaneously minimizing traffic flow impacts during the work week for the commuting public.

Intervention Program Finds Employment Opportunities for Veterans with the Drive288 Project

NEWS RELEASE

raynese@btg288.com

 

HOUSTON, TX—August 15, 2017—The Drive288 project is committed not only to improving the flow of traffic along 10.3 miles of SH 288, but also to enriching the surrounding community whenever possible. For this reason, the project has partnered with The Houston Launch Pad, an organization that improves the lives of local veterans and others who are looking for employment, an end to homelessness, and a better life.

 

Because veterans make up 9% of the overall population but 23% of the homeless population, the services at Houston Launch Pad help veterans from the ground up. From providing a place to sleep, nutritional sustenance, and employment training, the non-profit organization is then able to work with organizations like Drive288 to get these men and women into the job force. Thanks to a generous grant from the Texas Workforce Commission, Launch Pad provides veterans with training that prepares them for work in carpentry, concrete finishing, construction, and heavy equipment operator occupations.

 

“These grants lead to skilled training and future job opportunities which expands our state’s workforce, benefiting our communities,” remarked state Sen. Borris L. Miles.

 

Drive288, along with Williams Brothers Construction and ISI Infrastructure Services, partnered with Houston Launch Pad to help 150 individuals make the transition from dependency to becoming hard-working members of the local workforce. These veterans are finding work on the highway construction project, which will ready SH 288 and the Houston area for its continued growth.

 

“This grant partnership delivers workforce solutions that will help improve workers’ job skills and is an impetus for job creation for our communities,” added state Rep. Shawn Thierry.

 

About Drive288

 

The Drive288 construction project, also known as the SH 288 Toll Lanes Expansion Project, encompasses a 10.3-mile stretch of SH 288. The project, which spans from US 59 in the north, to just past Beltway 8, includes three expansive new interchanges at Beltway 8, Loop 610, and the Texas Medical Center. The project is owned by the Texas Department of Transportation, and the lead developer is Blueridge Transportation Group. More information can be found at Drive288.com.

SH 288 Toll Lanes Expansion Project Gives Hope to Houstonians

NEWS RELEASE

raynese@btg288.com

 

HOUSTON, TX—May 01, 2017—Blueridge Transportation Group (BTG), lead developer on the Drive288 expansion project, has undertaken several community outreach efforts to enrich the community they serve: the people of Houston, TX. Project outreach began in 2016, launching with a donation to Turkeys for Seniors, a charity organized by Councilman Larry Green of District K; donations and a gift-giveaway to children and families through Change Happens!, a Houston-based community enrichment center; and a Saturday sponsorship of Sheila Jackson Lee’s charity, Toys for Kids.

 

Recently, the Drive288 team endorsed diversity in STEM careers to students at Southwest High School. This Career Day focused on educating future generations, like 9th grader Nathaniel Avilez, on the career options available to them in construction—both in the field and in the office—specifically for minorities and other underrepresented groups. Presenters from the project included Enrique Martin (CEO, Blueridge, Transportation Group), Fabian Iglesias (Financial Controller, Almeda-Genoa Constructors), Carla Bight (Human Resources, Almeda-Genoa Constructors), Sam Sauceda (Engineering Assistant, Blueridge Transportation Group), Ninouska Poonam (Design Engineer, Almeda-Genoa Constructors), and Raynese Edwards (Public Information Coordinator, Blueridge Transportation Group).

 

As an EEOC project and employer, Drive288 is dedicated to supporting diversity, and highlights non-majority groups who work with the project. Their Women in Construction human interest series highlights some of these individuals, such as Field Engineer, Jaclyn Tran. Along with these outreach efforts, Drive288 recently held its own Job Fair, which sought Field Supervisors, Superintendents, and Laborers to join the project. As well as supporting individuals, the $815 million project has a 12% DBE goal, and has expressed a strong commitment to work with disadvantaged businesses. These efforts are meant to build and rally the community around the construction on SH 288 through unity and inclusion, and to help the community and highway grow together. “Everyone who is working with this project is passionate about leaving a positive impact on the communities we serve,” said Raynese Edwards, Public Information Coordinator for BTG. “Our proactive involvement reflects that passion, and the willingness we have to go above and beyond for Houstonians.”

 

The construction project, which includes the Harris County section of SH 288, will add toll lanes and expansive new interchanges to a 10.3-mile stretch of roadway, from US 59 in the north to the Harris County/Brazoria County line at Clear Creek. The interchanges and 18 new direct connector/ramp bridges will improve connectivity to and from Beltway 8, IH 610 South Loop, and the Texas Medical Center. Construction is expected to last until mid-2019. Detailed updates and project information are available at Drive288.com.
