Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018
Open House 5:30 p.m.
Hearing 6:30 p.m.


The TxDOT Houston District is proposing to add bike lanes on the outside  north bound and south bound shoulders of SH 3 between Richey Street to FM 518, a length of 14.25 miles in Harris County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and staff will be available to answer questions. The public hearing portion will begin at 6:30 p.m. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Dec. 21, 2018, to be a part of the official hearing record.


The purpose of the proposed project is to provide a safe bicycling roadway for the public. The proposed SH 3 improvements include:

  • Utilize the existing shoulders and widen approximately two to five feet of pavement in some areas
  • Create a 5-foot bike lane on the outside north and south bound shoulders (with a one- to three-foot buffer in most areas)
  • Construct north bound right-turn lanes at Pineloch Drive and El Dorado Boulevard

This project requires no additional right of way.

Special Accommodations:

The public meeting will be conducted in English. Persons who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact TxDOT’s Public Information Offices at (713) 802-5076. Requests should be made at least five working days prior to the public meeting. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.

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 December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
