The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) proposes to improve SH 146 with the construction of four main lanes over 0.87 mile (4,594 feet) in the existing right of way (ROW) between BS 146 and Ferry Road in Baytown, Harris County, Texas. The proposed improvements are needed in order to accommodate existing traffic, future growth of the region, improve safety and to improve connectivity.
The proposed project includes:
The existing six-lane roadway with a grassy median would become the proposed future frontage roads. The proposed project would be constructed entirely within the 300-foot to 336-foot existing right of way. There would be no displacements of residences or commercial structures.
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 December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT
Any interested citizen 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 Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2016, to:
