The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Houston District, will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed roadway improvements to State Highway (SH) 146 from Red Bluff Road to Farm-to-Market (FM) 518, in Harris and Galveston Counties, Texas. The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 28,2015,
at the James F. Bay Elementary School, 1502 Bayport Boulevard, Seabrook, Texas, 77586. The meeting will be held in an open house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The purpose of the Public Meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The project proposes to widen SH 146 from Red Bluff Road in Harris County to FM 518 in
Galveston County, Texas. The proposed project consists of widening and restructuring the existing fourlane divided roadway facility to a six- to twelve-lane freeway with grade separations at major
intersections, access roads in selected locations, and express lanes over Clear Creek. The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce congestion and enhance safety by accommodating traffic volumes
especially during commute periods, accommodate traffic due to competing uses (i.e., local traffic and through-traffic), accommodate hurricane and emergency evacuation options, and upgrade roadway and bridge designs to current standards. The proposed improvements would potentially require additional
right-of-way including residential and commercial displacements.
Maps showing the proposed project’s location and design drawings will be available for review at the Public Meeting.
This information will also be available by appointment for review Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m, excluding state holidays, at the TxDOT Houston
District Office, located at 7600 Washington Avenue, Houston, Texas 77007, and at TxDOT’s Southeast Houston Area Office, located at 702 FM 1959, Houston, TX 77034. To schedule an appointment at the Houston District please contact Ms. Reina Gonzalez, at (713) 802-5269.
