Description: TxDOT is proposing adding additional lanes to US 77 between US 87 and FM 1685. The proposed project includes:
  • Constructing another bridge over the Guadalupe River
  • Constructing six additional bridges over low-lying flood-prone areas
  • Adding inside shoulders to existing lanes
  • Widening outside shoulders on existing lanes
The new bridges and road in between the bridges includes two 12-foot lanes, four-foot inside shoulders and 10-foot outside shoulders. The proposed project will enhance safety and improve mobility by reducing bottlenecks and congestion caused from the road narrowing to two lanes.

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.
