Purpose: The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed reconstruction and widening of I-45 from FM 1764 to North of the Galveston Causeway Bridge, in Galveston County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format so citizens may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions.
   
Description: Proposed improvements include the following:
  • Reconstructing and widening the existing six-lane interstate to an eight-lane interstate
