TxDOT is proposing to restripe SH 249 from Chasewood Park Drive to Gregson Road from six to eight main lanes in Harris County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT is affording an opportunity for a public hearing on the proposed project and that final environmental documents are available for public review.
The proposed project would add an additional lane in each direction creating an eight-lane highway. The restriping would occur to the inside of the existing highway.
The existing SH 249 right-of-way (ROW) width varies within the project limits, but the minimum ROW width is approximately 320 feet. The proposed project would be constructed within the existing right of way; therefore, the proposed project would displace no residences or commercial structures.
Any interested member of the public may request a public hearing covering the social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed location and design for this project. Requests for a public hearing must be submitted in writing on or before April 27, 2018, to:
TxDOT Houston District Office

Houston, Texas 77251-1386
