Purpose:

The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed improvements on two sections of roadway in Nash, TX. One project will be on US 82 from 0.2 mile west of I-369 in Texarkana to 0.7 miles west of FM 989. The total length is approximately 2.80 miles on US 82, and 0.26 miles on FM 989. The other project will be on FM 989 from I-30 south Frontage Road to US 82. The total length is approximately 0.56 miles. The meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation so the public may come and go at their convenience. Staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Friday, August 2, 2019, to be a part of the official public meeting record.

Description:

The goal of the US 82 project is to widen US 82 from a 2-lane roadway to a 4-lane roadway with a center left turn lane. The project on FM 989 has also been designed to widen the road by adding a center left turn lane to go from a 4-lane roadway to a 4-lane roadway with a center left turn lane. In order to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians, bicycle lanes and sidewalks are proposed to be included on both projects. In addition, each project would include a drainage design featuring a new storm drain system with inlets. Additional right-of-way will be required for both projects.

Special Accommodations:

TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. 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 (903) 799-1342 at least 2 working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
