Mobility Authority to Begin Construction on SH 45SW

Federal Court Denies Injunction — Construction of SH 45SW Begins

July 1, 2015

During final design of SH 45SW, the Mobility Authority identified design changes that would benefit the project through reduced environmental impacts, improved operations, and/or increased safety. These design refinements were submitted to the Texas Department of Transportation’s Environmental Affairs Division (ENV); it was determined that an environmental reevaluation is required. A reevaluation is an assessment of any refinements made to either the project's design or the affected environment, and a determination of what effects these refinements might have on the validity of the environmental documentation.

In response, the design team will submit the required reevaluation documentation. ENV will then determine if the refinements under reevaluation can move forward. Ultimately, all design refinements are recommended to more efficiently meet environmental commitments and reduce the overall footprint of the project.

March 5, 2015

On March 5, 2015, the Texas Department of Transportation issued a Record of Decision (ROD) which allowed the SH 45SW project to proceed to final design and construction, with specific commitments to protect the environment during its construction and operation.
