Public Notice          Project Plans          Alternative Analysis          Mitigation Plan

The applicant proposes to discharge an estimated 2,330 cubic yards of fill material into 1.45 acres of waters of the U.S. to facilitate improvements to existing Interstate Highway 45.  Specifically, the project plans will include reconstructing and widening IH 45 from south of the Galveston Causeway Bridge to 61st Street and adding a direct connector from northbound 61st Street to northbound IH 45.  The proposed improvement would consist of eight 12-foot-wide travel lanes (four in each direction) with 4-foot-wide inside and 12-foot-wide outside shoulders.  The frontage roads would include four 11-foot-wide travel lanes (two in each direction) with a 5-foot-wide bike path and 5-foot-wide sidewalk separated from the frontage roads by a 1-foot offset.  Grade separated intersections, with U-turns and turning lanes would be constructed at the following intersections:  Harborside Drive, 71st Street, and 61st Street onto northbound IH 45.  The proposed project would require approximately 5 acres of additional right-of-way (ROW).
