Public Meeting - Proposed Improvements for US 77


Where:

Waxahachie Civic Center
2000 Civic Center Lane
Waxahachie, TX 75165

When:

Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016
Public Meeting
Open House from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

To present the proposed improvements for US 77 from Farm-to-Market (FM) 66 to north of McMillan Street in Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas and to receive public comment.

Description:

The proposed project involves demolition and replacement of the existing US 77 Viaduct with a northbound bridge and construction of a new parallel bridge to the west of the Viaduct for southbound traffic. The project also involves reconstruction of the existing US 77 (Elm Street) and Monroe Street to provide a couplet system that would tie into the proposed bridges. Both bridges would cross over a linear park (Waxahachie Creek Hike and Bike Trail). The purpose of the proposed project is to overcome the inadequacies and structural deterioration of the existing US 77 Viaduct and to provide better mobility through downtown Waxahachie. The proposed improvements would potentially require approximately 3.8 acres of new right of way and 0.13 acre for proposed easements.
