via the Baytown Sun:

Segments H and I-1 are the subject of two “public scoping hearings” slated for Tuesday in Dayton and Wednesday in Mont Belvieu.

The segments, which are being considered together, would run approximately 36 miles from Interstate 59 in the northwest part of the greater Houston region to Interstate 10 between FM 2100 and state Highway 146. The segments will run through Montgomery, Harris, Liberty and Chambers counties.

The meetings are meant to solicit public input in advance of Environmental Impact Statement on the segments which will be prepared by the Texas Department of Public Transportation and the Grand Parkway Association.

Gornet said members of the public are encouraged to provide information on areas that the finalized route should avoid, such as parks and schools.

The two segments are planned as a four-lane, limited-access toll road with a 400-foot wide right-of-way.

Unlike the F-2 segment up here in Spring, I don’t know if there’s much opposition to the H and I-1 segments. I imagine we’ll soon find out.
