In-person details TxDOT is providing an in-person open house option for individuals who would like to participate in person, instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same pre-recorded presentation as posted online, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions, and submit written comments.

Purpose TxDOT is proposing improvements along I-10 from Voss Road to I-45 (Downtown), otherwise known as the Inner Katy Corridor, in Harris County, Texas.

The proposed project would include approximately 6.3 miles of new managed lanes, reconstructing the existing general-purpose lanes, and expanding the current drainage system. I-10 between the project limits consists of five 12-foot-wide general-purpose lanes in each direction, 8 to 10 foot-wide shoulders, a discontinuous frontage road system varying between 2 to 3 12-foot-wide lanes, and 6-foot-wide sidewalks. The existing right-of-way is approximately 415-feet-wide.

TxDOT is currently considering two alternatives to add four managed lanes which will be presented at this public meeting to compare to the no-build scenario. The two alternatives are: 1) Elevated Managed Lanes where the proposed managed lanes would be on an elevated structure with minimal right-of-way (ROW) needed (approximately 0.34 acres) and no residential or business displacements and 2) Non-elevated Managed Lanes where the proposed managed lanes would be located at the same grade as the general purpose lanes, expanding the ROW needed (approximately 12.54 additional acres), with displacements of approximately 52 residential structures and 30 businesses/commercial structures.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional ROW and potentially displace 52 residential structures and 30 business/commercial structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Act and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for ROW acquisition, may be obtained from the ROW Project Delivery Manager by calling 713-802-5753.

The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.

Any environmental documentation or studies, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for review Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Houston District Office, 7600 Washington Avenue, Houston, Texas 77007. Project materials are also available online at www.txdot.gov/projects/hearings-meetings.html.
