TXDOT is holding public meetings tonight and Thursday night regarding I-45 and light rail expansion.
The Texas Department of Transportation is holding two public meetings this week to present results of a study that analyzed possibilities for expanding the North Freeway.
TxDOT staff and consultants will describe study results and then listen to concerns and respond to questions from the public.
Meetings will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Davis High School, 1101 Quitman, and at the same time Thursday in the community room of Greenspoint Mall, 12300 North Freeway. For information, call 713-802-5000.
This study of Interstate 45 from downtown Houston to The Woodlands is part of the Metropolitan Transit Authority's examination of light rail in the corridor. Voters last year approved a transit-expansion plan that includes building light rail from downtown to Bush Intercontinental Airport. A draft environmental impact study for the first phase, University of Houston-Downtown to Northline Mall, is scheduled to be finished later this year.
