SH 550 Info

The first two phases of State Highway 550 (SH 550) – formerly FM 511 – consist of overpasses at Paredes Line Road/FM 1847 and Dr. Hugh Emerson Road/FM 3248 and bypass a section of FM 511. The completed projects allow traffic to avoid two railroad crossings and five signalized intersections. With the completion of overpasses at US 77/83 and Old Alice Road in late 2014, the full SH 550 project will extend from US77/83 to Highway 48 at the Port of Brownsville.

SH 550 is a cashless toll road, and thanks to an innovative billing system, drivers without an electronic toll tag can receive a bill in the mail. There's no need to prepay or register.
