Your opinion wanted to fix North Freeway traffic issues

November 14, 2013 11:43:09 AM PST
Commuters on the north side of Houston already know what's wrong with traffic on I-45. Now they're going to get to tell officials how to make things better.

In an effort to address existing and future traffic demands on I-45 North Freeway and the North Houston area, the Texas Department of Transportation will host a pair of public meetings on November 14 and November 19 to present information on the North Houston Highway Improvement Project.

The project limits are from the interchange of US 59 and SH 288 to the interchange of I-45 and Beltway 8 North. The study area includes portions of I-10, US 59, and SH 288 near downtown Houston; Hardy Toll Road from north of downtown Houston to Beltway 8 North; and IH 610 and Beltway 8 North between I-45 and Hardy Toll Road.

The public meetings will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at Aldine Ninth Grade School, 10650 North Freeway, Houston, TX and Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at Jefferson Davis High School, 1101 Quitman St., Houston, TX. The meetings will be held in an open house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The purpose of this third round of public meetings is to present information on proposed options of the North Houston Highway Improvement Project, and receive public feedback on reasonable alternatives for highway improvements in the North Houston corridor and how community feedback has been incorporated in the planning process.

A short video regarding the project can be viewed during the meeting. Maps of the study area and exhibits showing reasonable alternatives and the study process will be on display. Project team members will be available to answer questions. The same information will be presented at both meetings.
