Public hearing on Crosby roadways to be March 12th

BARRETT STATION– The Harris County Engineering Department is conducting a public hearing on a proposed major thoroughfare plan for this area next Thursday.

This thoroughfare is based upon proposals of roadway construction from TxDOT and Harris County. And generally transects the Crosby, Texas 77532 vicinity.

The proposed thoroughfare in the unincorporated area of Harris County, Texas lies outside any city extraterritorial jurisdiction in Harris County.

The Public Hearing will be held at the Barrett Station Community Center located at 808 Magnolia Drive, Crosby, TX 77532 on Thursday, March 12, 2015 from 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. The meeting will be structured in an Open House format.

The purpose of the Public Hearing is to present the proposed Major Thoroughfare Plan for the Non-Extraterritorial Jurisdiction area to the public and receive comments. The purpose of the project is to develop a comprehensive thoroughfare alignment plan for an unincorporated area of Harris County, Texas.

The boundary of the study area is approximately defined by the western Liberty County line, the northern Baytown extraterritorial jurisdiction line, and the eastern Houston extraterritorial jurisdiction line.

U.S. Highway 90 forms part of the west side of the study boundary and crosses through the northeastern region of the study area.

This major thoroughfare plan enhances developing and maintaining an effective transportation system within and adjacent to the study area. This includes the proposed classification of existing, future, and neighboring thoroughfares. The project goals are: address and alleviate existing congestion through the study area, provide alternate thoroughfare routings and begin planning for future thoroughfares in the area.

Property owners within the study area are encouraged to participate in this public meeting. Exhibits showing aerial photography and alternative routings for the thoroughfare corridors under consideration will be presented at the meeting. Representatives from Harris County and the project study team will be available at the public meeting to answer questions. Written comments about this project may be submitted at the meeting.
