Notice and Opportunity to Comment SH 99 from FM 1093 to I-10
TxDOT is proposing improvements to SH 99 from FM 1093 to I-10 in Fort Bend and Harris Counties, Texas. TxDOT held a public meeting on Oct. 24, 2017, a virtual public hearing from Aug. 31, 2021 to Sept. 17, 2021, and an in-person public hearing on Sept. 2, 2021. This notice is affording an opportunity to comment as part of the environmental review process for this project. This notice and opportunity to comment is also being provided to affected local governments and public officials. Comments must be received in writing on or before Nov. 30, 2021, to be part of the official record.
The TxDOT Houston District Office proposes to widen SH 99 from four to six lanes between FM 1093 and I-10 for a total distance of approximately 5.9 miles. The additional main lanes (one in each direction) are proposed to be constructed within the existing median. The proposed improvements also include an adjustment of ramp locations and the addition of right-turn lanes at various intersections. The existing right-of-way widths vary between 300 to 400 feet and the proposed right-of-way width would stay the same.
Although 0.96 acre of additional right-of-way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling (713) 802-5269.
