Public Hearing - I-45 from FM 1764 to North of the Galveston Causeway Bridge


Where:

La Marque High School
397 Duroux Road
La Marque, Texas 77568 (Map)

When:

Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018
Open House: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Public Hearing: 6:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to gather public input on the revised proposed design of I-45 from FM 1764 to north of the Galveston Causeway bridge in Galveston County, Texas. The first part of the meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, followed by a formal presentation and comment period.

Description:

Proposed improvements include:

  • Reconstructing and widening I-45 from a six-lane interstate to an eight-lane interstate
  • Reconstructing frontage roads with a minimum of four 12-foot lanes (two in each direction) with bicycle accommodations
  • Adding five-foot sidewalks where feasible

The typical right of way (ROW) width would be 300-feet. The total project length is approximately 10 miles. The proposed project would require approximately 8.7 acres of additional ROW and would potentially displace three commercial properties.

Comments must be received on or before February 21, 2018 to be part of the official hearing record.

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The public hearing will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call the TxDOT Houston District Public Information Office at (713) 802-5076 at least five working days prior to the public hearing. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
