The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The City of Conroe, in cooperation with TxDOT, is proposing to widen the existing Sgt Ed Holcombe Blvd. S between Loop 336 and the West Fork San Jacinto River and Old Conroe Road between the West Fork San Jacinto River and FM 1488, as well as construct a new bridge over the West Fork San Jacinto River to connect the two roadways in Montgomery County, Texas. The virtual meeting will consist of a narrated presentation by the project team, project exhibits and other information, and an opportunity to comment. Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, May 5, 2021, to be a part of the official meeting record.
The proposed project would occur on approximately 5.4 miles of existing roadway and within new location and would involve the following: (1) construction of an approximately one-mile-long, four-lane bridge over the West Fork San Jacinto River; (2) reconstruction and widening of Sgt Ed Holcombe Blvd. S and Old Conroe Road to a four-lane, divided facility that will cross the river via the proposed bridge and connect Loop 336 and FM 1488; (3) construction of a shared use path on the east side of the facility within the project limits; and (4) construction of six detention ponds. The proposed project would occur within a typical proposed right-of-way (ROW) width of 80 to 120 feet and require approximately 81.2 acres of new ROW.
