​​HOUSTON – A massive revision of state highway plans adds nearly $9 billion in new funds for improving Texas roadways, including a $1.32 billion major overhaul of I-45 in Houston and nine other area projects.

Projects along SH 36 in Fort Bend and Brazoria counties and SH 105 in Montgomery and ​San Jacinto Counties were also included in the unified transportation plan approved Tuesday by the Texas Transportation Commission. 

​Construction will start in late 2020 on the first of seven separate projects that will realign I-45 along downtown's eastern side, ​​parallel to I-69, also known as US 59.

Combined, the two interchanges are expected to cost nearly $1.7 billion, more than half the full cost of remaking I-45 around downtown.​
