BAHEP gets update on TxDOT projects Photos by Mary Alys Cherry

What on Earth is going on with the road system in Harris and Galveston counties? Who hasn’t asked that question while sitting in traffic on IH 45, SH 146 or any of numerous roads in between? The Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership invited Texas Department of Transportation Houston District Engineer Quincy Allen to shed some light on TXDoT’s plans for the region during a recent BAHEP membership meeting at Lakewood Yacht Club. The Houston District, he told the crowd encompasses 5,856 square miles and serves about 5.8 million people and 5.1 million registered vehicles, going on to explain in detail what TxDOT was doing along the Gulf Freeway and the $202 million facelift it was giving Highway 146 over the next five years.
