The city of Conroe, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation, is proposing to widen the existing Sgt. Ed Holcombe Blvd. South between Loop 336 and the West Fork San Jacinto River and Old Conroe Road between the West Fork San Jacinto River and FM 1488 as well as constructing a new bridge over the West Fork San Jacinto River to connect the two roadways.

A prerecorded presentation will be posted to the city's website April 20 at 5:30 p.m. To access the meeting, click here and search for the keywords "Old Conroe Road."


The virtual meeting will consist of a narrated presentation by the project team, project exhibits and other information, and an opportunity to comment. Comments must be received on or before May 5 to be a part of the official meeting record.

The proposed project would involve the construction of a roughly 1-mile, four-lane bridge over the West Fork San Jacinto River; the reconstruction and widening of Sgt. Ed Holcombe Blvd. South and Old Conroe Road to a four-lane, divided facility that will cross the river via the proposed bridge and connect Loop 336 and FM 1488; the construction of a shared-use path on the east side of the facility within the project limits; and the construction of six detention ponds.
