TxDOT is initiating this study to identify improvements to SH 249 in Harris County, from BW 8 to I-45 North. The purpose of the study is to enhance mobility and operational efficiency; accommodate current and future traffic demands; and to improve safety at intersections.
Currently, SH 249 has three travel lanes in each direction with a turn lane in the median.
Proposed alternative improvements include the following:
The build alternatives would also include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations in accordance with The Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. The proposed project would require additional right of way, resulting in potential displacements.
