Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person meeting for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to review the same materials as the online public meeting.

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

Hallsville Junior High School Cafeteria
1 Bobcat Ln.
Hallsville, TX 75650

When:

Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022
Virtual: 12 p.m. (noon)
In-Person Option: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting with in-person option to present improvements to the proposed I-20 widening project. The limits of the proposed project would extend from FM 450 to SH 43, in Harrison County. 

Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to reconstruct and widen I-20 from 2 lanes to three lanes in each direction to increase the capacity.  This will improve regional mobility and address pavement deficiencies on this major corridor. Proposed improvements along I-20 from FM 450 to SH 43 will include construction of one-way frontage roads, construction of new entrance and exit ramps from Galilee Rd to FM 968, and upgrades to grade separated interchanges. The proposed project is anticipated to require approximately 57 acres of new right of way. Maps showing the project location, design, and other information regarding the project will be available below on the day of the virtual meeting and will also be displayed in the virtual room.

Comments must be submitted via mail or email on or before Wednesday, March 9, 2022, to be included in the official public record. To submit a comment by mail, send it to the TxDOT Atlanta District Office, Attention: Adrian Walton, P.E., 701 E. Main St., Atlanta, TX 75551.
