Purpose The purpose of the public meeting is to solicit input on an access management study for FM 1485 from SH 242 to SL 494 in Montgomery County, Texas. The meeting will be conducted in an open-house format. Staff will be available to answer questions.

The Access Management study is working to identify short-, medium-, and long-term transportation improvements along the FM 1485 corridor to reduce crashes, improve mobility, enhance multi-modal connectivity, and support existing and future development. The travel corridor being studied is approximately 6.5 miles of FM 1485 from SH 242 to SL 494 in Montgomery County, Texas. This is the second public meeting to be held regarding this project. The first public meeting was held in June of 2023. This second public meeting aims to present to the public the proposed short-, mid-, and long-term improvements for the FM 1485 study corridor.

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 on this webpage. These materials will also be available in hard copy form for review at the in-person option.
