Purpose: The purpose of the hearing is to gather public input and receive comments on the proposed FM 2100 from FM 1960 to South Diamondhead Boulevard. The project is located in Houston, Harris County.
   
Description: The proposed project would widen FM 2100 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway. Five-foot sidewalks would be constructed on both sides of the roadway. The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce congestion and enhance safety by accommodating traffic volumes, which are expected to increase by approximately 57 percent on this section of FM 2100 in the next 20 years. The total project length is approximately eight miles.
  • The proposed improvements would potentially require approximately 107 acres of additional right of way, which includes seven proposed detention pond locations
  • Six residences, eight commercial structures, and two churches would be potentially displaced as a result of the proposed project

The comment deadline has been extended to May 26, 2016.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
