Purpose:

The purpose of the open house is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to SH 73 in Chambers and Jefferson counties. The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation is planned.

Description:

Proposed improvements include the following:

  • Rebuild SH 73 as an overpass across SH 124; currently, SH 73 and SH 124 is an at-grade intersection
  • Remove the County Line Road crossover
  • Rebuild the frontage roads between FM 1663 and SH 124:
    • Add new asphalt overlay 
    • Add and extend frontage roads at the turnaround to allow for continuous travel - east past 124

The purpose of this project is to improve safety and increase mobility. All projects will be constructed within the existing right of way (ROW). No additional ROW will be required.

The meeting will be conducted in English.
