Two public meetings on transportation tonight

From the I-45 Coalition mailing list:

METRO Meeting, Thursday, June 8th, Ketelsen Elementary School, 600 Quitman Street (at N. Main) from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm – INTERMODAL TERMINAL PUBLIC MEETING

What’s an Intermodal Terminal ?? – It’s basically a Hub / building(s) where several transit lines end or begin. Several of Metro’s bus lines would end/start there; the rail line; the planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that will be going North to the Intercontinental Airport area and a future commuter rail line that might be built from 290. If you want to see Metro’s official announcement you can go to this link – If you are not on Metro’s e-mail list, you can sign up with Metro and they will notify you directly. Contact them at: On May 31st, Metro’s board voted to negotiate the purchase of 9 acres of land for this purpose – there is a good article by the Houston Chronicle’s Rad Sallee about the Terminal at this link:

TxDOT Meeting, Thursday, June 8th, Sinclair Elementary School, 6410 Grovewood Lane (North of W. 11th and between Ella and W. TC Jester) from 6 pm – 8 pm – PROPOSED CONSTUCTION OF FLOOD MITIGATION / RETENTION PONDS ALONG WHITE OAK BAYOU (near I-10)

The meeting’s purpose is to present TxDOT’s proposed action and project status and to get public comments and answer questions. TxDOT will need additional right-of-way to make this happen. TxDOT says that they will accept written comments at this meeting or you can submit them to Director of Project Development, Texas Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 1386, Houston, TX 77251-1386 any time before June 18, 2006.

If anyone attends either of these, please let me know how it goes.
