Where:

When:

Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2020
2 p.m. - 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT will conduct a public open house to provide information and gather input from the public on the proposed I-27 improvement project in Randall County, Texas. The open house will be offered at different times for convenience and the information presented at each meeting will be identical. Each meeting will convene with a short presentation from TxDOT. Representatives from TxDOT and project consultants will be available to answer questions about the proposed project. Comments must be received by Wednesday, March 4, 2020, to be part of the official record.

Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce congestion and improve mobility and safety by providing additional roadway capacity. Additionally, this project is proposed to meet future traffic demands due to population growth and increased traffic volumes within Amarillo and in the connection to Canyon. The project limits are on I-27 from north of Western Street in Amarillo to south of the US 60/US 87 interchange, which is north of Canyon, a distance of approximately 10 miles.

The proposed improvements consist of adding capacity to a freight corridor by widening I-27 from four to six mainlanes (three lanes in each direction) within the existing right of way, improving ramps and frontage roads, reconstructing and improving bridges over intersecting cross streets, and providing bike and pedestrian accommodations from Western Street to just south of Sundown Lane. The final determination of the right of way needed or residential/business relocation requirements will not be known until the schematic is refined.

Special Accommodations:

The open house will be conducted in English and TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. 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 (806) 356-3256 at least two working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

Memorandum of Understanding:

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 December 09, 2019 and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
