County commissioners approved . . . a financial assistance agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation for a $10 million grant to cover development and design costs for the Brazoria County portion of the Highway 288 toll project.” A county attorney told commissioners, “This is the first step over about a four-year process of working on an agreement for the toll road.” The agreement now goes to the state transportation commission for review and approval.
