The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to widen FM 2920 from BU 290 to SH 249 in Harris County.
The proposed project would require approximately 200 acres of additional right of way (ROW).
Currently, FM 2920 is a two-lane undivided road from BU 290 to Cypress Rosehill Road. From Cypress Rosehill Road to SH 249, FM 2920 is a four-lane roadway divided by a continuous turning lane.
The proposed improvements to FM 2920 include:
- Widening of the existing FM 2920 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided roadway from BU 290 to Cypress Rosehill Road
- Conversion from a four-lane to a six-lane divided roadway from Cypress Rosehill Road to SH 249
- Bicycle facilities and sidewalks
- A flush median from BU 290 to SH 290
- A grassy median from SH 290 to AJ Foyt
- A raised median from AJ Foyt to SH 249
- Conduct environmental analysis
- Develop proposed build alternative
- Complete Environmental Assessment document
- Once approved, complete final design
- Begin ROW acquisition
Two public meetings have been set for the 1st quarter of 2020 to gather public input on the proposed improvements:

Texas has been aggressively acquiring private land through condemnation for transportation projects across the state to accommodate the needs of a growing population. If you have been contacted by TxDOT or any of their representatives, please contact us immediately. The important thing to remember is that even if you’ve received a letter in the mail from a condemnation entity informing you of their intentions, this does not mean that it’s a done deal. There are many ways to influence the condemnation process to ensure that your wants and needs are met, but it’s important that you involve knowledgeable professionals that can help guide you through the process.
