TxDOT is asking for your feedback on a historic project that would reroute I-45 to run parallel to US-59 on the east side of downtown, and remove the Pierce Elevated.
You now have until July 27 to submit your comments as part of the official record.
The proposal would also remodel and widen I-45 all the way to the North Beltway.
Designers predict the new configuration will increase traffic speeds in downtown by 20 miles per hour during peak times.
The entire project cost is $7 billion, with construction is set to begin as early as 2020.
If you would like to submit your feedback, visit www.IH45Northandmore.com.
