I-45 Town Hall Meeting on August 13

The following is a message from the I-45 Coalition:

I-45 Town Hall Meeting on August 13
We need you to be there!

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will present findings from the I-45 Corridor Study at a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, August 13, at 2:00 pm. at Jeff Davis High School Auditorium (1101 Quitman, six blocks East of North Main).

The I-45 Corridor Study includes reconstruction recommendations from TxDOTs consulting firm.

Public intervention at this point is critical so that alternatives to a wider highway can be considered. Your presence at this meeting will have a big influence on the outcome of I-45 design.
Hear expansion alternatives presented by the I-45 Coalition and supported by our elected officials. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, State Senator Mario Gallegos, State Representative Jessica Farrar, Commissioner Sylvia Garcia, City Councilman Adrian Garcia and others will be there to show their support for the neighborhoods.
High turnout counts!

Lets make it a giant turnout to make ourselves heard! Form a carpool or, if you need a ride, contact your civic association. See you there!

You may recall that TxDOT is already looking at plans for the proposed expansion. You can read up on what they've been contemplating so you'll be as prepared as they are. I'll be at this meeting, and I hope many of my neighbors will be as well. Drop me a note if you have any questions.
