AAH’s Comments on TxDOT’s I-45 Expansion Impacts Assessment Reports

2020-06-11T16:36:15-05:00News|

On February 7, Air Alliance Houston, together with partners, submitted comments to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) on the agency’s two revised draft impacts assessment technical reports for the North Houston Highway Improvement Project (NHHIP), or I-45 expansion.

We continue to have serious concerns that TxDOT is failing to meet the mandate of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to propose alternatives with less impacts for decision makers to consider.

We have requested that TxDOT review and seriously consider our comments as it continues to develop the North Houston Highway Improvement Project, considers the impacts of the project, evaluates required mitigation for impacts, and develops future documents pursuant to NEPA.
