City of Houston Planning Dept TXDOT I-45 Project Workshop

The Planning Department has so far hosted three public workshops to gather input on TXDOT’s I-45 reconstruction project. The purpose of the workshops was to discuss and build consensus on community goals for addressing issues like housing, flooding, and others identified by people during TXDOT’s official comment period. These discussions will aid the City and its technical team as they develop alternative designs and make recommendations for changes to TxDOT. Additional workshops are being scheduled for late Sept./early Oct. (TBD).
