A public meeting on the 2020 Brazoria County Thoroughfare Plan is being held on two dates in November for residents in Brazoria County.
Road Map to the Future is being presented by the Houston-Galveston Area Council and Brazoria County to gather input on the proposed thoroughfare.
The thoroughfare plan is a long range (50-plus year) plan that identifies the general location and type of roadway facilities that are needed to meet projected long-term growth in the county.
On November 12, a public meeting will be held from 6-8 pm at Lake Jackson Civic Center at 333 SH 332 in Lake Jackson. On November 14, a public meeting will be held from 6-8 pm at Nolan Ryan Community Center at SH 35 at Childress Dr. in Alvin.
The study and draft plan information is available at www.h-gac.com/go/Brazoria.

Houston-Galveston Area Council has established a partnership with Brazoria County to update the Brazoria County Thoroughfare Plan. The intent of the Thoroughfare Plan is to look at Brazoria County’s transportation network holistically, rather than by individual segments or areas, and to develop strategies and guidelines for maximizing the effectiveness of the county-wide transportation system.
According to H-GAC, the Brazoria County Thoroughfare Plan will provide the County with an updated planning tool that can be used to manage, guide and design a transportation network that improves connectivity, mitigates congestion and accommodates new development and growth throughout the County.
This 12-month study began in April 2019 and will conclude in March 2020.
