TxDOT is providing two in-person open house options for individuals who would like to participate in person, instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same pre-recorded presentation as posted online, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions, and submit written comments. In-person meetings will be held at two locations, but the information shared at each will be the same.

|Purpose||TxDOT is conducting the SH 225 and I-610 East Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study that covers SH 225 from I-610 East to SH 146 and I-610 East from Telephone Road to Gellhorn Drive in Harris County, Texas.|
The purpose of the public meeting is to present transportation alternatives and receive public comments. An earlier set of public meetings was held in 2022 and public comments from those events along with stakeholder input was considered in the development of the alternatives. The final results of the study will be used as a resource to inform future roadway improvement projects that would be subject to environmental review.
The public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English or Spanish, one will be provided to you free-of-charge. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the public meeting, please contact the NEPA Public Engagement Coordinator at 713-802-5199 or by email, as shown in the notice no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 12, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the study team to arrange.
Please call 713-802-5199 to request special accommodations or if you have need for interpretation/translation.
