U.S. 290 Area Major Thoroughfare Study
Public Comment Period EXTENDED until May 13, 2016 .
The Harris County Engineering Department is conducting a planning study evaluating future major thoroughfare alignments in the northwest quadrant
of the county. The study area includes the Hockley and Waller communities and borders on Waller County, Montgomery County and the Rose Hill,
Cypress and Katy communities.
The study area lies in the City of Houston extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ), where Houston has adopted a Major Thoroughfare and Freeway Plan (MFTP)
that guides local governments, property owners and developers in the placement of future arterial roadways.
More information on the City of Houston major thoroughfare planning process can be accessed on their web site;

Houston updates and revises the MTFP map on an annual cycle.
In 2015, the Harris County Engineering Department submitted a request for revisions to several thoroughfares in the study area. By mutual agreement
between the Engineering Department and the Houston Planning and Development Department, many of the requests were deferred for evaluation in
2016 as part of a comprehensive study of the area to be conducted by Harris County. The draft study is now complete and was accepted by
Commissioners' Court on March 29th for the purpose of seeking public review and comments.
The Harris County Engineering Department invites the public to a meeting on Monday, May 2, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM at
Harris County Precinct 3 Hockley Service Center located at 28515 Old Washington Road, Hockley, Texas 77447.
All public comments on the draft study are due by May 4, 2016 and will be evaluated by the Engineering Department. The revised study will be posted
on the Harris County Engineering Department website at http://www.eng.hctx.net/ in advance of the study being accepted by the Harris County
