Purpose: TxDOT will host a public meeting to gather feedback and suggestions on possible improvements to FM 89 (Buffalo Gap Road), from US 83 to Chimney Rock Road in Abilene. The meeting will be an open house format so citizens may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions.
   
Description: Considering input and comments received at the November 2016 public meeting, TxDOT is proposing the following improvements:

From FM 89 from Chimney Rock Road to south of Rebecca Lane:
  • Two lanes in each direction with a two-way left-turn lane (flush median)
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations consisting of 14-foot wide shared use lanes and five to ten-foot wide sidewalks

From Rebecca Lane to US 83:

  • Widen to three lanes in each direction, adding a 17-foot wide raised median, and dedicated left-turn lanes
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations consisting of 14-foot wide shared use lanes and five to six-foot wide sidewalks.

Public input is critical to this study’s success and all members of the community are invited to give feedback and suggestions on potential improvements.

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The public meeting will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call 325-676-6817 at least five working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
