Opponents Continue to Fight Against TxDOT in Proposed I-45 Expansion

August 13, 2021 Posted in Industry News

A community survey for the I-45 North Houston Highway Improvement Project closed earlier this week, after TxDOT reopened public comment in July. The Texas Transportation Commission will now decide whether the project should move forward as part of the 2022 Unified Transportation Program.

The planned expansion would widen parts of I-45 from downtown Houston to Beltway 8. TxDOT has continued to receive pushback from residents and other stakeholders, including Harris County Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis, who argue the project would displace community members and negatively impact air quality in the region. Other stakeholders, including the Greater Houston Partnership, support the expansion and its potential to promote economic growth in Houston.
