The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) established a partnership with Montgomery County Precinct 2 and Commissioner Riley to conduct a sub-regional mobility study. The Montgomery County Precinct 2 Mobility Study (MP2) represents a concentrated effort to address existing and future mobility needs in Southwest Montgomery County. Precinct 2 is experiencing explosive growth in commercial and residential developments resulting in ever-increasing congestion and mobility challenges.
MP2 is an 18-month comprehensive transportation study that will result in actionable recommendations to improve mobility and access to jobs, homes, and services in the study area.
The study will analyze current and future conditions (e.g., population, employment, other relevant demographics, roadway network, and economic vitality), identify existing traffic bottlenecks and roadway facilities with high congestion levels and/or potentially unsafe conditions. The study will result in a list of projects that will guide short, medium and long-range transportation investment decisions for now and for years to come.
Note: The study has been funded by FHWA and Montgomery County Precinct 2.
