TxDOT schedules Public Meetings on North Houston Highway Project

NORTH HOUSTON–The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, will hold public meetings for 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 I-610 and Beltway 8 North between I-45 and Hardy Toll Road.
