Environmental Info

The SH 130 Concession Company and the Texas Department of Transportation remain committed to ensuring that SH 130 Segments 5 & 6 are maintained in ways that minimize environmental disruption. Federal approvals for SH 130 Segments 5 and 6 specify measures that the SH 130 Concession Company and TxDOT must take to meet environmental regulations and standards.

  • Water pollution controls during construction and upon completion
  • Protecting, monitoring and, if needed, plugging or remediating water and oil/gas wells
  • Safely managing and limiting use of all hazardous materials
  • Recycling construction debris and materials
  • Protecting wetlands, wildlife and habitat along the route
  • Mitigating noise pollution during construction and after completion
  • Mitigating impacts on air quality during construction and after completion
  • Mitigating impacts on historic structures and cultural resources
  • Monitoring and responding to potential discovery of archeological and paleontological sites
