Where:

The virtual public meeting and in-person option dates and times indicated below.

When:

The pre-recorded presentation (in English and Spanish) will be posted on this page on Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022, at 5 p.m.

Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation and materials delivered in the online public meeting, which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff, and leave written comments. The in-person option will be held on Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Porter High School cafeteria, 22625 Sandy Lane, Porter, TX 77365. 

Purpose:

The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The project is proposing improvements along FM 1314 from Ferne Dr. to SL 494 in Montgomery County, Texas. 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. Comments must be received on or before Monday, Feb. 28, 2022, to be a part of the official meeting record.

Description:

The proposed improvements would improve mobility and enhance safety by constructing a 16-foot-wide raised median with left-turn lanes along approximately five miles of FM 1314 from Ferne Drive to SL 494. The proposed improvements would also include the installation of upgraded vehicle detection systems at several signals and raised pavement markers. The project would take place within existing right of way and no displacements are anticipated.

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish are not your primary languages or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English or Spanish, 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 you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting, please contact the District Environmental Specialist at (713) 802-5840 no later than 4 P.M., February 3, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the project team to arrange.

Memorandum of Understanding:

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. 9, 2019, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
