SH 287 SH 289

State Highway 288, or SH 288, is a north–south highway in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of Texas, between I-45 in downtown Houston and Freeport, where it terminates on FM 1495. The route was originally designated by 1939, replacing the southern portion of SH 19.

In Harris County, SH 288 is the South Freeway, a divided freeway known for having one of the widest medians of the local road system. It retains freeway status from its northern terminus up to SH 6. From the Harris-Brazoria County Line to Freeport, it is referred to as the Nolan Ryan Expressway, in recognition of Baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan of Alvin, Texas, which is not directly on this road. In Freeport, it is known as Brazosport Boulevard.

Proposed Toll Road

To help alleviate congestion on SH 288, HCTRA plans to construct toll lanes in the median of the existing freeway. The route will begin at US 59 just south of Midtown and terminate at the intersection of the proposed Grand Parkway (SH 99) for a total length of 26 miles (41.8 km). The entire length of the project will have 4 lanes with interchanges at IH-610 and at Beltway 8. Construction is estimated to begin in 2012.[2]
