Purpose The purpose of the public meeting is to present study findings to date, present the Universe of Alternatives, or types of improvements that have been identified along the corridor, and to receive feedback from the public.
Description The PEL Study is a collaborative approach to transportation decision-making that considers environmental, community, and economic goals early in the transportation planning process and streamlines the process for delivering transportation solutions. The I-10 East PEL Study will identify transportation issues along the corridor and provide an opportunity for identifying and prioritizing potential solutions for those issues.

If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English or Spanish, one will be provided to you free-of-charge.

If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the public meeting, please Gabriel Adame, NEPA Public Engagement Coordinator, at 713-802-5199 or by email as shown in the notice no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 18, 2024.
