Part of the issue with traffic on FM 518 (on the western side of Pearland) is that the turning lanes (both right and left) aren't designed to handle the volume of traffic that's currently in place. They'll eventually have to rebuild the road to include medians and longer turning basins so that through-traffic doesn't get held up by overflowing lines of cars trying to make left and right turns.

I've lived in Old Town Pearland for 5 years. And I love it. The historic homes are beautiful. Only problem I see is the city's lacking of addressing the flooding issue here. I get a lot of lip service. They say the neighborhood drains well to Mykawa then to city ditch. Then why does Mykawa stay flooded? And the subdivison across Walnut doesn't drain into us. It only looks higher. Then why does the house on the corner of Austin and Walnut flood easy? These jerks think we're stupid. I concerned they are trying to make this another Belliare. One good thing is, I'm 2 min. from Central Texas Bar-B-Q. LOL Killiens Steak House is great. But I'm not going to pay $7. for a potatoe the size of a extra large egg.
I avoid 518 and 288 as much as possible sitting at a light for three cycles isn't for me.

I moved from Houston to Pearland in Lakes of Highland Glen. It is so beautiful out there and I have no regrets moving. We are notified of road work, parades & holiday events. Makes you feel like your in a very cozy home town. I know there is crime everywhere, but I feel like the residents look out for one another.
