||TxDOT, in conjunction with the Amarillo Metropolitan Planning Organization, is proposing the following improvements:
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 Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
- The conversion of approximately two miles of SL 335 from FM 2590 to Bell Street from a non-freeway to a freeway section with frontage roads, ramps, grade separations over intersecting cross streets and a four-mainlane section with a provision for future expansion to an ultimate six-mainlane section. Six-foot-wide sidewalks would be provided along each frontage road.
- The reconstruction of the existing interchange of I-27 with SL 335 would consist of a frontage system at the first level, a replacement of the existing I-27 bridge with a new bridge at the second level and a proposed SL 335 mainlane bridge at the third level of the proposed interchange. The proposed I-27 bridge would be constructed to the ultimate six-lane section but would be striped for four lanes to accommodate future improvements from Western Street to north of SL 335. The design would also provide for the right of way (ROW) needed to accommodate future potential direct connection ramps.
- The improvement to 0.4 miles of Soncy Road, between FM 2186 and West 83rd Avenue would consist of a four-lane divided urban road, with provisions for bicycles and pedestrians.
All interested residents are invited to attend this public hearing.
