Notice of Availability - SH 105 from Mount Mariah to FM 149


Purpose:

The purpose of this notice is to inform the public that a Finding of No Significant Impact has been issued and that the Final Environmental Assessment is available for review.

Description:

The proposed project would widen SH 105 both to the north and south side of the existing highway from an undivided, two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway with outside shoulders, intermittent sidewalks within the urban section of the project and at the Montgomery High School, and open ditches for most of the highway’s length. There are five detention ponds located within the proposed right-of-way (ROW).  Proposed SH 105 would typically consist of two, 12-foot-wide travel lanes in each direction, with a 16 to 40-foot-wide median and 10-foot-wide shoulders that could serve as a shared use with bicycles. The additional ROW required would be approximately 23 acres. The width of the proposed ROW would range from 160 feet near the project’s western terminus at Mt. Mariah Road to 355 feet at the bridge crossing areas.

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.
