Where: Grimes County Expo Center
5220 FM 3455
Navasota, TX 77868
When: Thursday, April 3, 2014
Open House: 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Presentation: 6:30 p.m.
Purpose: The previous SH 249 Grimes County open house presented the recommended study area for the proposed construction of SH 249 from FM 1774 to SH 105 in Grimes County. This meeting will gather public feedback on the proposed alternatives.
Description: The open house meeting will cover:
  • Review of the proposed project, which includes constructing a new two-lane roadway with a passing lane in alternating directions and shoulders within a right of way that would accommodate future widening to a four-lane divided roadway
  • Presentation of six alternatives, with discussion on the pros and cons of each alternative
  • Sharing the recommended alternative, a new roadway that will require approximately 400 acres of right of way; no relocations are required
The proposed construction is intended to improve safety, reduce existing and future traffic congestion, improve transportation system linkage and provide an emergency evacuation route. The proposed construction would be tolled.

The meeting will be held in an open-house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be a brief project presentation at 6:30 p.m. with an opportunity for public comment. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and provide comments any time on or before April 18, 2014.

For more information about this project, please see the SH 249 project web page.

Spanish interpretation will be provided at the meeting (interpretación español será proporcionada en la reunion).
