Purpose:

TxDOT will be holding a virtual public meeting with in-person option to discuss the proposed widening and reconstruction of SH 149 from 0.8 mile south of SH 315 to US 59 in Panola County, Texas.

Description:

The public meeting is to provide information and receive comments from the public for the proposed reconstruction of the existing SH 149. The proposed project will reconstruct SH 149 from the two existing lanes to a four-lane section with two lanes in each direction and will complete the Carthage loop. The FM 10 and Adams Street intersections would also be reconfigured for operational and safety improvements. This project is scheduled for construction in the fall of 2022.

For additional information, please contact Glenn R. Yowell, P.E. by phone at (903) 799-1204.

Comments must be submitted on or before Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021, to be included in the official public record. To submit a comment by mail, send to TxDOT Atlanta District, Attn: Glenn R. Yowell, P.E., 701 E. Main St., Atlanta, TX 75551 or by email.

Special Accommodations:

The SH 149 virtual public meeting with in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the SH 149 public meeting, please contact Glenn R. Yowell, P.E., Atlanta District, at (903) 799-1204 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021.
