Purpose: TxDOT will conduct an open house to provide information and gather input on a proposed project on Interstate 10 and US 54 (see map), from Loop 375 (Cesar Chavez Border Highway) to Yandell Drive. The open house will be from 5 - 7 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m.
   
Description: TxDOT will conduct a public meeting on Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016, to provide information and gather input regarding proposed improvements, which consist of constructing additional direct connectors, ramps and/or auxiliary lanes and widening existing ramp and direct connectors between I-10, I-110, US 54 and Loop 375 (Cesar Chavez Border Highway).

The improvements are needed to increase mobility and address congestion on the existing roadway network. The project may require the acquisition of additional right of way. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the proposed project and gather input from the public on the alternative layouts.

Following the meeting, TxDOT will evaluate public input, refine the project alternatives and identify a preferred design to evaluate further.

Maps of the project study area and preliminary layouts of project alternatives will be available for review and comment. Project staff will be available to answer questions. All handouts will be presented in English and Spanish.
