The Texas Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings Jan. 28 and 30 to gather public input on the proposed widening of FM 2920 from Business 290 to Hwy. 249, according to a public notice from TxDOT. The open house meetings will not include a presentation, but staff will be available to answer questions, and community members can come and go and provide comments on the proposed widening.

The project proposes widening FM 2920 from two lanes to a four-lane divided roadway between Business 290 in Waller and Cypress Rosehill Road in Tomball as well as widening FM 2920 from four lanes to a six-lane divided roadway between Cypress Rosehill Road to Hwy. 249, according to TxDOT information. The roadway would include a flush median between Business 290 and Hwy. 290; a grassy median between Hwy. 290 and A J Foyt Road; and a raised median between A J Foyt Road and Hwy. 249. Additionally, bicycle facilities and sidewalks would be added.

About 200 acres of right of way are needed for the widening project, according to agency information.

Public meetings are scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 28 at Tomball High School, located at 30330 Quinn Road, Tomball, and for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 30 at Waller High School, located at 20950 Field Store Road, Waller. TxDOT last held public meetings on the project in January and November 2018, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.

Public comments on the proposed widening will be accepted no later than Friday, Feb. 14. Residents can submit comments electronically to [email protected] or online as well as at the meeting or by mail to:
