The purpose of a PEL study is to use enhanced public involvement and engagement, along with data, to determine transportation needs for a designated area. The study also draws from previously completed planning studies, while evaluating current conditions and future projections, plus feedback from community members and stakeholders. Unlike a construction project that identifies a proposed roadway with drainage, right-of-way and identified funding, this study will determine whether there is a need for transportation improvement projects that can address safety, design, mobility, and the general community’s transportation needs in an equitable manner.
The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The virtual and in-person meeting will consist of the same narrated presentation by the project team, project exhibits and other information, and an opportunity to comment.
|Description||A PEL study is a planning-level study that provides TxDOT the opportunity to gather information that informs various elements of the transportation decision-making process. This particular PEL is being conducted along two existing roadways that comprise one study area. The SH 225 portion is approximately 14 miles long and includes the entire SH 225 corridor, starting west of the I-610 East interchange, and ending at SH 146. The I-610 East portion is approximately 7.5 miles long, beginning at Telephone Road, proceeding over the Ship Channel Bridge, and ending at Gellhorn Drive.|
|Accessibility||The public meeting materials will be provided in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language, or have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to participate in the public meeting, please contact Environmental Coordinator at (713) 802-5560 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022.
