Public Notice          Plans


The applicant proposes to permanently discharge fill material into 1.947 acre of palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands, 3.564 acre of palustrine forested (PFO) wetlands, and 0.441 acre of man-made ponds to improve approximately 6.63 miles of US 59 from FM 2914 to south of SL 573 in Liberty and San Jacinto Counties.  The road improvement project will also temporarily impact 1.451 acres of PEM wetlands, 0.608 acre of PFO wetlands, 0.873 acre of man-made ponds, and 0.623 acre (1,074 linear feet) of tributaries, including Tarkington Bayou.  All temporarily impacted areas will be restored to pre-construction contours once the work is complete.


The purpose of the project is to bring US 59 in the project area up to current interstate design standards by making US 59 a controlled access roadway with the project limits and reduce congestion and increase mobility.
