Construction Projects

The City of Manvel is growing rapidly, which means a lot of construction. Stay updated on the latest projects around Manvel!

Cemetery Road Reclamation

Status: Under Construction

Brazoria County will be conducting road work on Cemetery Rd. from HWY 6 to Scott Ave. Impacts to traffic are anticipated to be minimal. In the case of lane closures, flaggers will be on-site directing traffic.

Delays have occurred due to weather.


  • October 18, 2022: Brazoria County began reclamation work on Cemetery Rd.
  • November 28, 2022: Road is scheduled to be overlayed.
  • December 28, 2022: Brazoria County has completed paving of the road and the City of Manvel is in the process of gathering quotes for striping.

Construction of Overpasses on SH 288

Status: Under Construction

TxDOT began construction of an overpass near Manvel on State Highway 288 (SH 288). While not a City of Manvel project, the construction of the overpass has the potential to affect traffic for Manvel residents. TxDOT will be overseeing the project which will include an addition of access roads from Del Bello Blvd. and Rodeo Palms to Highway 6 and an overpass will allow traffic to exit from Rodeo Palms directly onto SH 288. The addition of this and other overpasses along SH 288 is taking place due to TxDOT's assessment of traffic on the highway, which indicated a need for this project to accommodate growth in the area.

The project will be completed in four phases with an anticipated completion timeline of 2025.

All traffic will remain on SH 288 and the access roads when completed. No diversions are anticipated.

Water Reclamation Plant

Status: Design Phase

Community Services is currently working with Freese & Nichols to design and build a 1 million gallon per day Water Reclamation Plant using Microbial Filtration and Ultra Violet technology to treat wastewater. The addition of the new Reclamation plant will provide state-of-the-art wastewater treatment which will allow the City of Manvel to continue producing properly treated wastewater which will continue to provide our residents with a safe and healthy City. 

Community Services is currently at 70% design and looking to have the plant operational by 2025.


  • October 25, 2021: Completed PDR for future WWTP and 20% design

  • May 31, 2022: Initial submissions of 40% design for all systems excluding MBR

  • July 25, 2022: The City selected technology for MBR (Membrane Bioreactor). FNI has begun coordination with manufacturers to move past 70% design layout.
  • September 1, 2022: A draft permit to expand outfall was received by the City from TCEQ.

Upcoming and Additional Projects

Pavement Improvements

The City of Manvel contracted Fugro to perform a pavement condition survey and pavement management analysis for the City’s maintained road network. The objectives of the project were twofold: Develop maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R) strategies for improving the existing pavement infrastructure and provide an estimate of the needed budget. The second objective was to provide the City with a list of streets that need to be widened to 26 feet.


  • The City will be updating Council on the 5-year plan to address the asphalt pavement inventory.

  • Complete MEP (Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing) Civil Site / Drainage Plan approved to be submitted to TXDOT.

Elevated Storage Tank (EST)  

Design Phase
The City is completing the design of an EST to tie into our water service network. The function of the EST is to provide redundant water for fire protection and potable drinking water allowing the natural force of gravity to produce consistent water pressure throughout the system.
