The Texas Department of Transportation will host two public meetings in November around Tomball and Waller to share information on the agency’s proposed widening of FM 2920 between Business 290 and Hwy. 249, according to a public notice from TxDOT.
Meetings are set for Thursday, Nov. 8, in Tomball and Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Waller.
The meetings will follow an open house format in which community members can come and go, ask questions, submit comments and view project information. No formal presentation will be given during the meeting. Comments can be submitted through Wednesday, Nov. 28, regarding the project.
The project proposes widening FM 2920 from two lanes to a four-lane divided roadway between Business 290 and Cypress Rosehill Road and widening FM 2920 from four lanes to a six-lane divided roadway between Cypress Rosehill and Hwy. 249, according to a public notice. The project also proposes adding a grassy median on the western portion of the project and a center median from Cypress Rosehill to Hwy. 249.
According to TxDOT’s project tracker online tool, work on the segment stretching from Business 290 to Cypress Rosehill is estimated to cost $100 million. The project is estimated to cost an additional $45 million for the work from Cypress Rosehill to Hwy. 249. Both segments are slated for construction to begin in five to 10 years, according to the online tool.
TxDOT held two public meetings in January on the project as well. At that time, TxDOT officials said three alignments were being considered for the project, Community Impact Newspaper reported.
