The city of Friendswood has added a resolution supporting Segment B staying on the Grand Parkway plan to its agenda for the Aug. 5 meeting.
“Though not in Friendswood’s city limits, Segment B proposed in northern Galveston County is vital to mobility in our region,” Friendswood Mayor Mike Foreman said in a press release.
Segment B would run from I-45 to Hwy. 288; Segment C would run from Hwy. 288 to Hwy. 59.
Both Galveston County and Friendswood officials, as well as the Alvin-Manvel Chamber of Commerce, are urging residents to protest the removal of segments B and C from the Grand Parkway plan, according to a draft of the 2020 Unified Transportation Program, Community Impact Newspaper reported.
“It’s important we make our voices heard in the process,” Galveston County Judge Mark Henry said in a letter.
Citizens can attend the public hearing in Austin on Aug. 6, or submit comments to the Texas Department of Transportation online, in person, over email or over the phone.
