When: Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
   
Purpose: The purpose of the open house is to present information and answer questions about the approved FM 149 construction that spans from FM 1791 to FM 1097 West in Montgomery County.
   
Description: The FM 149 construction project includes:
  • Repairs
  • Resurfacing
  • Adding 5-foot shoulders

This project does not require additional right of way (ROW) or displacements. All work is within the existing 80-foot ROW. Tree removal is expected within the existing ROW.

The primary benefit of this construction project is to improve safety. In the last three years alone, there have been 68 crashes within the project area. Adding shoulders is also expected to add more vehicle room, given the curvature of the roadway, as well as provide additional safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

The 13-month-long construction contract was awarded to Smith & Company at a cost of $10.2 million and is estimated to begin in early 2016; however, timing is subject to change. For more information, please visit the FM 149 construction project page and sign up for email updates.
