When:

Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017
Open House 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Public Hearing 6:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to gather public input on the proposed widening of BU 90U from I-610 to east of Mesa Road, in Harris County, Texas. The first part of the meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, followed by a formal presentation and comment period.

Description:

Proposed improvements include:

  • Widen the existing travel lanes from 11 feet to 12 feet
  • Add one additional 14-foot travel lane in each direction
  • Add continuous sidewalks in each direction throughout the project limits
  • Add one 16-foot continuous left turn lane

The project requires approximately 2.47 acres of right of way for a proposed right of way width of 120 feet.  The proposed project would displace five commercial businesses in four commercial structures.  No residential displacements are proposed. 

The estimated construction cost is $20 million.  The duration of construction is anticipated to last 18 months and start in mid-2020.

Comments must be received on or before December 13, 2017 to be part of the official hearing record.
