Purpose The Texas Department of Transportation, Houston District, is hosting an in-person public meeting to discuss the I-45 North Houston Highway Improvement Project (NHHIP).  This meeting will discuss Segment 3 of the project, specifically Segment 3B-1, which includes the construction of a drainage project along St. Emanuel Street, scheduled to begin this fall.  

The I-45 NHHIP is designed to create additional roadway capacity to manage congestion, enhance safety, and improve mobility. The project spans I-45 from I-69 to Beltway 8 North, including I-69 improvements between Spur 527 and I-45 in Harris County, Texas. This encompasses the reconstruction of the downtown Houston freeway loop system, including I-45, I-69, I-10, and SH 288. I-45 will be rerouted from the west side of downtown Houston to run parallel with I-69 and I-10 until it exits the downtown area and continues north.  

Additionally, updates will be provided on the status of activities and requirements under the Voluntary Resolution Agreement (VRA) between TxDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). A map depicting the full project limits, including the three segments, is available here.


The meeting will be conducted in English with real-time Spanish translation. If you need a translator or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language, or if you have difficulty communicating effectively in English or Spanish, a translator will be provided free of charge with advance notice. If you have a disability and require assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs with advance notice.
