Expanding SH 146

State Highway 146, which runs directly through the heart of Seabrook, Texas, is a main connection between Galveston and Houston and serves as a hurricane evacuation route for thousands of residents. For many years there has been negotiations and meetings held to expand the highway as the entire region is growing more and more each year.

In 2016, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) began moving forward with the project by starting Right-of-Way (ROW) Acquisitions. The ROW Acquisition takes a good amount of time and now three years later, TxDOT is ready to start construction on the project with construction slated to begin by the Spring of 2019.
