HOUSTON – Texas Department of Transportation Houston District Engineer Michael Alford made a surprise presentation at today’s Montgomery County Commissioners Court meeting, honoring The Honorable Ed Chance, Montgomery County Commissioner Precinct 3, with the prestigious Road Hand Award.
The Road Hand Award is a joint effort between the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Texas Good Roads/Transportation Association to recognize those special individuals who have freely given their time, energy, support and vision toward accomplishing important transportation programs or projects in their communities, their region or the entire state.
Commissioner Chance is a visionary and he has taken the lead to put transportation bond issues in front of voters before elections. He is also active in pursuing federal and state funding for transportation and mobility projects in Montgomery County.
Commissioner Chance has been a champion for transportation improvements in Montgomery County over the last 25 years.
