Public Meeting - US 290 Off-Peak HOV Lane Improvements


Jersey Village High School Cafeteria
7600 Solomon Street
Houston, TX 77040 (Map)


Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.


The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on environmental reevaluation of the off-peak High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane improvements along US 290 from West 34th Street near the I-610/US 290 interchange to Barker Cypress Road in Harris County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, to be a part of the official meeting record.


The proposed project includes operation of an existing US 290 mainlane as an HOV lane during specific weekday travel times, to provide transit between the Cypress Park and Ride near Skinner Road and the I-610/US 290 interchange. In conjunction with the existing US 290 barrier-separated reversible HOV lane, the proposed improvements provide routes for HOV traffic in both directions during peak travel hours. During all other times, the lanes would operate as general purpose lanes. This project would not change the total number of lanes along US 290 and no new right of way would be required.
