Tuesday, December 10, 2019
4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), as the Lead Agency, is proposing to improve the traffic flow of IH 45 Frontage Roads and Ramps within the Fairfield area. An informal open house is scheduled for Tuesday, December 10, 2019 between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30p.m. at the Fairfield Elementary School in Fairfield, TX. TxDOT staff will display the proposed alternative and be available to discuss the project.  Comments may be made at the meeting or in writing by December 27, 2019.

Description:

The existing frontage roads within the Fairfield section of IH 45 are two-way, one lane north and one lane south, with on and off ramps accessing the IH 45 main lanes. The existing frontage roads lanes are 12-ft wide with 4 to 5-ft shoulders bounded by open ditches. US 84 and FM 27 intersect both east and west frontage roads within the project limits. There is currently no frontage road south of US 84 along the east side of IH 45.

Proposed roadway construction along IH 45 extends from approximately 0.5 miles south of Church Street to approximately 1.6 miles north of FM 27 (total length of 4.36 miles) in Fairfield, Texas. Construction includes ramp reconfigurations, frontage road rehabilitation, frontage road realignment, new location frontage, intersection improvements, and shared use paths. This project would require approximately 6.44 acres of new Right of Way (ROW) along the east side of the existing ROW.
