TxDOT to Hold Virtual Public Meeting May 25 on Hwy 36 Widening Project from US-59/I-69 to FM 2218
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen SH-36 from I-69/US-59 to FM 2218 in Fort Bend County, Texas. TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting on the proposed project. The virtual meeting will be on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at 5:30 p.m.

The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and receive comments. Details of the proposed project can be found in English and in Spanish.
The proposed project would consist of the widening and reconstructing of SH 36 from a two-lane (one in each direction) undivided roadway to a four-lane (two in each direction) divided roadway. The proposed roadway would consist of four 11-foot lanes (two in each direction) with an outside 5-foot bicycle lane (one in each direction). The bicycle lanes would be constructed on the roadway and would be offset from the travel lanes by two feet. A 6-foot sidewalk would be constructed on both sides of SH 36. The roadway would include a 30-foot-wide raised median. In addition, the proposed project includes the construction of two detention ponds. The proposed right-of-way (ROW) width would range from 150 feet to 187 feet. The proposed project would require approximately 25 acres of additional ROW and would be approximately 2.9 miles in length.

Written comments from the public regarding the proposed project are requested and may be submitted by mail to the TxDOT Houston District Office, PO Box 1386, Houston TX 77251. Written comments may also be submitted by email to
