An open house will begin at 6 p.m. and will provide information and display exhibits related to the project. A short presentation by TxDOT personnel will be conducted at 6:30 p.m. and the open house will reconvene after the presentation. The proposed project is to address needed bridge repairs/improvements and to improve traffic operations, mobility and safety along I-27 and I-40.

On I-27:

  • Proposed repair and widening of the 45th Avenue bridges and ramp improvements from 45th Avenue to Georgia Street on both the north- and southbound lanes.
  • Proposed repair of the 26th Avenue bridges and the widening of the southbound bridge and ramp improvements from 26th Avenue to 34th Avenue on the southbound lane.

On I-40:

  • Proposed repair of the Bell Street bridges and the improvements to the intersection and frontage road approaches.
  • Proposed improvements to the west bound exit ramp between Crockett Street and Georgia Street.

There will be a need for additional right of way on the proposed Bell Street location only but no residential or business relocations are anticipated. The proposed project’s tentative construction schedule can be obtained at:
