KATY (Covering Katy News) – Katy residents have been dealing with congestion on the Grand Parkway and it’s not getting better, but there is a proposed plan in the works to widen the State Highway 99 between FM 1093 and I-10 the Katy Freeway.
The proposed project would widen the four-lane divided highway to a six-lane divided highway, adding a center cable median barrier and modifying several ramps.
The public has an opportunity to ask questions and comment on the plan in two weeks. A public hearing will be held from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at Cinco Ranch High School at 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd., Katy.
The meeting will be an open-house format so people can come and go at their convenience, and Texas Department of Transportation staff members will be there to answer questions.
The open house will be in English. For people who have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. For people who have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Call TxDOT’s Public Information Offices at 713-802-5076 at least five working days prior to the meeting. Advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
