TxDOT has a plan to ease the traffic congestion on FM 529 in west Houston, now it wants your input on the proposed project.

The area TxDOT is focusing on is FM 529 between Greenhouse road and Highway 290. The biggest change proposed for this eight-mile stretch is turning the middle turn lane into a raised median. TxDOT says this would reduce the number of crashes on the road.

The plan also calls for adding extra turn lanes. A meeting on this is set for October 19.
