Notice of Public Meeting on Capital Improvement Plan
The City of Houston (COH) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will conduct a public meeting (as required for federally funded project) on:
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
The purpose of the meeting is to gather public input on proposed improvements to Tanner Road from Beltway 8 to Hempstead Highway including widening the road from 2 to 4 lanes between the project limits, and the construction of a storm water management system. The proposed project is approximately 1.8 miles long and extends through the COH and Harris County limits. The project may be completed in segments with the COH segment of Tanner Road constructed first.
Additional right-of-way would be required for the proposed action. Personnel from the COH Real Estate Branch will be available to discuss the procedures, benefits and programs and will provide other needed information regarding land acquisition.
The meeting will be in open house format. Documents and exhibits will be available for viewing from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be no formal presentation.
All interested citizens are invited to attend this meeting to express their views and discuss the project with COH and TxDOT representatives. Persons interested in attending the meeting that have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact the District Public Information Officer at 713.802.5072 at least two working days before the meeting. Because the meeting will be conducted in English, requests for language interpreters or other special communication needs should be made at least two working days before the public meeting. COH will make every reasonable effort to accommodate these needs.
Estimated Construction Cost: $16,400,000.00.
The COH portion of the project is currently programmed in the adopted Capital Improvement Plan with proposed federal funding participation through TxDOT.
