  1. I just posted online a comprehensive listing of my concerns about TxDOT's plan. http://houstonfreeways.com/analysis I would certainly be interested in getting any feedback for errors in my analysis, or issues I missed. Of course, some of these issues are matters of opinion, but many are serious and need to be looked at by TxDOT. I'm going to submit the final list (pending any changes based on feedback) as public comment.
  2. Per MaxConcrete's thread on aaroads.com, TxDOT is beginning the process to expand a 90 mile 2 x 2 lane section of I-45 between Houston and Dallas to 3 x 3 lanes, ultimately bringing I-45 to a minimum of 3 lanes each way along its entirely from Galveston to Dallas. Work will take place in the Bryan District through Walker, Madison, Leon, and Freestone Counties where it'll link up to already completed 3 x 3 sections in Walker and Navarro Counties. https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=26968.0 So it looks like many portions of I-45 will be in a state of extensive
  3. More than 80 percent of Texas voters approved a proposition in November 2015 to allocate $5 billion in sales tax funds to the Texas Department of Transportation starting in the 2018-19 biennium. But Texas lawmakers may now use a little-publicized backout option to help fill an estimated multi-billion state revenue shortfall. Roughly 1.2 million Texans voted yes on a proposition to supply the State Highway Fund with $2.5 billion per fiscal year beginning in fiscal year 2018 as long as the state collects more than $28 billion in sales tax. If state motor vehicle sales and rental tax revenue exce
  4. I couldn't find an actual topic on SH 249 (Tomball parkway) and its expansion up to ~ Navasota. So here's some background for anyone interested: HCTRA expanded SH249 to Tomball as Phase 1 of a multi-phase extension of SH249. This was completed and opened in 2015. https://hctra.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=527d9322e2244039b0bc3e93fe2c4fc1 The plan is for SH249 to ultimately terminate at SH 105 roughly close to Navasota, hence the nickname the "Aggie Tollway" or "Aggie Highway". This extension seems to be broken up be
  5. The large TX DOT site just north of I-10 on the east side of Washington has construction activity -- bulldozers clearing what has been a large empty lot for some time know. Does anyone have any information on what may be happening here. Wishful thinking says a new supermarket/shopping center (please!), but I'm guessing new apartment or town-home complex or something for TX DOT. Anyone have any information? Inquiring minds want to know!
