The purpose of the public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. The proposed project would widen the existing two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway from FM 521 to FM 2004, and widen SH 332 from four to six lanes between
FM 2004 and SH 288. The project would replace existing bridges that cross Buffalo Camp Bayou and a diversion channel that is east of Buffalo Camp Bayou. Additionally, the project would construct a drainage channel on new location that would run south from SH 332 to the Brazos River. Total length of the project is approximately 5.3 miles. Additional right-of-way (ROW) would be required. The proposed project would also result in residential and commercial displacements. The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce traffic congestion, accommodate population growth, and improve mobility, safety, drainage and hurricane evacuation.
Exhibits showing aerial photography and schematic plans for the proposed project will be available for review at the public meeting. This information will also be available by appointment for review Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., excluding state holidays, at the TxDOT Houston District Office located at 7600 Washington Avenue, Houston, Texas 77007, and at the TxDOT Brazoria Area Office at 1033 E.
