Draft Alternatives and Community Feedback

Using feedback previous community workshops and written comments, the City and its technical team have developed alternative designs to improve and change TxDOT’s North Houston Highway Improvement Project. These alternatives were presented for feedback at three community workshops held January 30, February 1 and February 3. You can view the materials from these meetings below.

Community workshops were held in three locations in mid-August and were hosted by the City of Houston’s Planning Department, with technical assistance provided by Huitt-Zollars and University of Houston’s Community Design Resource Center.

Additional workshops will be held in January 2020 to present alternative designs and opportunities.

The purpose of the workshops is 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.
