Tuesday, July 24, 2018
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
The purpose of the open house is to gather public input on potential route options to upgrade US 59 from southwest of Texarkana to north of Queen City to interstate standards. 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. Comments must be received on or before Aug. 10, 2018, to be a part of the official open house record.
TxDOT is conducting a planning study to develop and evaluate potential route options to extend Interstate 369 (I-369) from I-369/State Loop 151 southwest of Texarkana (Bowie County) to Farm to Market (FM) Road 2327 north of Queen City (Cass County). This section of US 59 in Bowie and Cass Counties will become part of the Interstate 69 system and be designated as I-369 upon meeting interstate standards and connecting to existing I-369. US 59 in this area does not currently meet interstate standards. To meet interstate standards, an interstate highway typically has a minimum of four lanes, continuous median, overpasses, and interchanges with no connecting driveways or at-grade intersections. Frontage roads may be included for local access.
TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (903) 799-1308 at least three working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
