Where:

Virtual: The presentation and meeting materials will be posted on this page at the date and time listed below.

The in-person meeting will be held at the following location: 

Abilene District Office Training Center
4210 N. Clack St.
Abilene, TX 79601

Purpose:

The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to receive public comment on the proposed plan to reconstruct FM 1082 starting from west of Cheyenne Creek Road to the east of the dam in Jones County, Texas.

The virtual meeting will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation showing the proposed option as well as several alternative options. Comments must be received or postmarked on or before Friday, July 22, 2022, to be a part of the official meeting record.

TxDOT is also providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the online public meeting which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants, and leave written comments. The in-person option will be held on Thursday, July 7, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Abilene District Office Training Center, 4210 N. Clack St. Abilene, TX 79601.

Description:

The project would reconstruct the existing FM 1082 due to the failing existing conditions of FM 1082 on top of the Dam. The new roadway will be 32-feet-wide with two 11-foot travel lanes and 5-foot outside shoulders. Alternatives that will be shown will consist of widening the Dam crest, lowering the Dam crest, a combination of the two, and the relocation to the bottom of the Dam. TxDOT will represent their alternative analysis and their recommendation.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or virtual meeting or in-person option, please contact Michael Haithcock, P.E., TP&D Director, at by email in the Notice or call 325-676-6800.
