Presentation: 6 p.m.
   
Purpose: TxDOT invites interested citizens to attend an open house to review and comment on the proposed construction of FM 3535 from FM 1520 to US 271 in Camp County. The project seeks to improve mobility and provide a safer, more efficient route through the area with improved access to the residential and recreational areas of Bob Sandlin Reservoir on FM 1520.

Additional right of way would be required for this project.

A presentation overview of the project will be given at 6 p.m. No formal presentation is planned; attendees may come and go at their convenience. Staff will be available to answer questions and discuss the project.
   
Description: The proposed project is needed to provide a safe and efficient east-west roadway for the various users of the northern Camp County transportation system and to provide improved access to the residential and recreational areas of Bob Sandlin Reservoir located approximately 2.5 miles northwest of the proposed intersection of FM 3535 with FM 1520.

Currently, to travel east-west in this area of Camp County, drivers must travel the network of narrow sand-oil surface County Roads. These County Roads typically consist of two narrow nine-foot lanes without shoulders.

An alternative to using the County Road system involves traveling FM 1520 and US 271 through the city of Pittsburg, adding approximately five miles to the trip based on the proposed location of FM 3535.

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 Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
