TxDOT to Hold Public Hearing Regarding Improvements to State Highway 36 from I-69 to FM 2218

(ROSENBERG) - The Texas Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting to discuss improvements to State Highway 36 from I-69 to FM 2218. The in-person option will be held on Thursday, Aug. 24 from 5-7 p.m. at the Rosenberg Civic Center, 3825 Hwy. 36 S. This Public Hearing is being held to present the proposed project, share environmental findings, and gather further public input.

A pre-recorded presentation and all relevant project materials will be available Thursday, Aug. 22 by 5 p.m. and can be accessed at https://www.txdot.gov/projects/hearings-meetings.html.


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-wide lanes (two in each direction) with a 10-foot-wide shared use path on both sides of the right of way. The roadway would include a 30-foot-wide raised center median.


Median openings and turn-bays would allow for left-turn movements along SH 36 within the project limits. The project is approximately 2.9 miles in length and would require approximately 25 acres of additional right of way. Two stormwater detention ponds are proposed for the project; one would be located on the west side of SH 36 near Fairgrounds Road, and one would be located on the east side of SH 36 near Ustinik Road. The existing bridge-class culverts located at the north and south crossings of Seabourne Creek would be replaced with bridges.


The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, potentially displace three residences and six non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right of way acquisition may be obtained from Felicia Shamlin by calling 713-802-5685.


The proposed project would require 2.72 acres of the total 164 acres from the Seabourne Creek Nature Park. Seabourne Creek Nature Park is a recreation area that includes facilities such as trails, wetlands, and green space. The portion of the property that would be impacted by the proposed project is currently used by the facility as a driveway and parking and is located along the western edge of the park property adjacent to the existing SH 36 ROW. The regional sports complex that is located on the eastern side of the property would not be impacted.
