Utility Relocations

Utility Relocation

The utility lines seen today are in the existing footprint of the highway and all of these will be relocated into the newly acquired right-of-way making room for the new highway. Utility relocation is one of the first phases and will take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete. Utility relocation begins at the end of 2018 and highway construction will begin in 2019.

TxDOT Properties

Vacant Businesses

As right-of-way acquisition has come to an end, businesses along the corridor are vacated. TxDOT now owns the property and is responsible for the demolition and upkeep of the property. The City of Seabrook is communicating with TxDOT regarding the properties and the need for mowing. You can view all acquired properties by visiting TxDOT’s Real Property Asset Map.

TxDOT Staging
