The Houston - Galveston Area Council proposal for allocating $288 Million in 2015 Proposition 1 Funds for the Houston region would spend less than 1% of those funds inside Beltway 8, according to H-GAC materials (pdf).

The area inside Beltway 8 is home to about 40% of the people and 60% of the jobs in the Houston region.

Comments on the spending proposals are due Monday, February 9, 2015 at 5:00 pm. The public is encouraged to attend and provide comments to H GAC. All written comments may be submitted to Transportation Public Information, Houston-Galveston Area Council, P.O.

The one project inside the beltway is to redo a freeway ramp at I-45 and Allen Parkway. Proposition 1 Funds are to be spent on the following objectives, according to the H-GAC Prop 1 website:

  • Addressing congestion in urban areas
  • Providing additional connectivity for rural areas
  • Maintaining the state’s existing road infrastructure
  • Addressing additional needs due to increased oil and gas production
