TxDOT is proposing to widen US 285 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders, and a median or barrier. In addition, median openings would be provided at intersections as needed. The proposed project is 49.3 miles.
The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and displace zero residences and 2 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 from the project consultant by calling 972-960-4451. The proposed project could involve construction in wetlands or floodplains, however, that has not been determined.
If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the virtual meeting, please contact Brian Swindell at 972-960-4451, or by email.
