When:

Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017
Open House 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Public Hearing 6:30 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT is proposing to reconstruct and widen SH 332 from FM 521 to SH 288 in Brazoria County, Texas. This notice also advises the public that a Draft Environmental Assessment is available for public review. The first part of the meeting will be an open house format so citizens may come and go at their convenience, followed by a formal presentation and comment period.

Description:

TxDOT proposes the following improvements to SH 332:

  • Widen SH 332 from the existing two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway from FM 521 to FM 2004
  • Widen SH 332 from the existing four-lane divided roadway to a six-lane divided roadway from FM 2004 to SH 288
  • Replace bridges at Buffalo Camp Bayou and the diversion channel east of Buffalo Camp Bayou
  • Construct a drainage channel on new location that would run south from SH 332 to the Brazos River
  • Improve drainage ditches

Total length of the project is approximately 5.3 miles. Additional right of way (ROW) would be required. The proposed project would also result in residential and commercial displacements. The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce traffic congestion, accommodate population growth, and improve mobility, safety, drainage and hurricane evacuation.

In accordance with Chapter 26 of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code, the hearing is also being conducted to allow the public the opportunity to review the draft EA and provide comments on the project’s potential impacts to approximately one acre of ROW from the Wilderness Golf Course entrance and to approximately two acres of ROW from the Wilderness Park property for the proposed drainage channel.

Written comments must be postmarked or submitted electronically on or before October 11, 2017. 

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made.

Please call the TxDOT Houston District Public Information Office at (713) 802-5076 at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

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 December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
