Purpose TxDOT is conducting a virtual public meeting to share information and gather input from the public on proposed proposing improvements along SH 302 from US 285 to FM 2019 near Notrees, Texas. The proposed project is located in Reeves, Loving, Winkler, and Ector counties, Texas. The virtual public meeting will present the preferred alternative, share background information, provide details on the project development process and timeline, and include multiple opportunities for the public to provide input through formal comment.

The proposed project consists of widening SH 302 from west of Mentone at US 285 to east of Notrees at FM 2019 from a two-lane undivided highway to a four-lane divided highway with two travel lanes in each direction, a center median, inside and outside shoulders and median openings, as needed. The proposed project is approximately 59-miles long. At this time, there are no proposed improvements within Mentone or Kermit.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace no residential structures and approximately eight non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, can be obtained by calling Todd Thurber at (432) 203-6153. The proposed project could involve construction in floodplains.

Accessibility The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting, please call (432) 203-6153 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Monday, Feb. 6, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
