TxDOT’s SH 249 Extension Project Progresses without Threatened Litigation

Southeast Texas Record reports, “Frustration over the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) plans to potentially build a toll road through rural Grimes County could lead to lawsuits being filed by fed-up property owners, although none have been filed to date.” The report adds, “TxDOT’s website lists the portions of the SH 249 project that run through Grimes County as ‘finalizing for construction,’ including construction of a four-lane tollway at an estimated cost of $46.1 million and a new location of a non-freeway facility, which comes with a $100 million price tag.”
