|Purpose||The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The project is proposing improvement along along FM 1960 from west of East Gatewick Road to just west of I-69 in Harris County, Texas. The virtual and in-person meeting will consist of the same narrated presentation by the project team, project exhibits and other information, and an opportunity to comment.|
The proposed improvements would construct a raised median with widths varying from 14 to18 feet wide with left turn lanes along approximately 9 miles of FM 1960 from just west of East Gatewick Road to just west of I-69. Signal timing improvements are proposed at 12 intersections within the project area. The project would take place within existing right of way and no displacements are anticipated.
The proposed project would involve an action in a floodplain.
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 by appointment Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Houston District Office, 7600 Washington Avenue, Houston, Texas 77007 or the TxDOT North Harris County Area Office, 16803 Eastex Freeway, Humble, Texas 77396.
