Reducing highway noise in our neighborhoods is a key issue Wendy has been working
on along with other community leaders and residents. TxDOT plans to add one lane to
Grand Parkway (between Westpark Tollway and I-10) in each direction in an upcoming
expansion project. Included in this project is the potential for adding sound abatement
TxDOT stated they are still in the environmental phase of this project. They expect to
hold a public hearing later this year (2019). The noise technical report was recently
approved. Please see the pictures showing the location of proposed noise barriers.
Proposed barriers are represented with green lines and existing barriers with blue lines.
Additional noise reducing features may be needed as well, and Wendy will work with
TxDOT to acquire complementary solutions to this quality of life issue.
