Description:

The Texas Department of Transportation will conduct a public meeting on Thursday, July 7, 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, K-110, US 54 and Loop 375 (Cesar Chavez Border Highway).
