Public Involvement

Public involvement is a critical element of the environmental study process. Over the course of the SH 45SW Environmental Study, the Study Team will conduct open houses, publish e-newsletters, visit neighborhood groups and other stakeholders, and keep the media informed.

The study team will discuss various alternatives with the public and gather feedback. This input will then be combined with technical analyses to identify the best options for meeting the project's purpose and need. Those options will then be subject to additional public review, ultimately leading to the recommendation of an alternative by TxDOT and the Mobility Authority.

Throughout the process, the Study Team will provide the public with detailed information about each alternative, including potential social, economic and environmental impacts and any potential mitigation measures. All formal public input received during the study will be incorporated into the final environmental study document.

We welcome your questions about the SH 45SW Environmental Study. Please feel free to contact us by telephone at (512) 593-4202 or send us a message electronically.
