Purpose: TxDOT will conduct a public hearing for the proposed tollway extension of SH 249 from FM 1774 in Pinehurst to FM 1774 north of Todd Mission, Montgomery and Grimes counties.
Description: The proposed SH 249 controlled access tollway consists of four main lanes within a typical 400-foot-wide right of way (ROW), spanning approximately 15 miles. The hearing will also include a brief presentation discussing an overview of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The public is encouraged to attend and provide comments on the project to help with the next phase of the environmental review process.

Approximately 727 acres of additional right of way would be required for the proposed project and displacements would be necessary. Please see the SH 249 Extension project page for more information.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
