TxDOT is proposing to acquire two separate parcels of land to use as placement areas for materials dredged from the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) in Brazoria County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public hearing on the proposed project.


This notice is provided as required by the Texas Coastal Waterways Act, Transportation Code, Section 51.006. The two proposed parcels of land to be considered for acquisition are Placement Area (PA) 86E and PA 86F.  PA 86E is a 102.66-acre parcel of land in the R.H. Barrow Survey, Abstract Number 653, Brazoria County, Texas and PA 86E is a 22.55-acres parcel of land in the D. Gilliland Survey, Abstract Number 195, Brazoria County, Texas. 

TxDOT is acquiring the property to fulfill its responsibilities as the non-federal sponsor of the GIWW.

Right of way and displacement requirements are not applicable for this acquisition.
