Open House: 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the open house is to discuss preliminary and conceptual improvements to US 77 (from south of the city of Woodsboro to north of the city of Refugio) to upgrade to a controlled access highway that meets interstate standards. The study is the initial stage of project development and public involvement will remain a vital element and will be continuous throughout all stages. The meeting will be held in a come-and-go format, so the public may attend at their convenience. Staff will be available to answer questions.

Description:

The US 77 Woodsboro/Refugio Route Study builds on the recommendations and progress of the I-69 Advisory Committee and the I-69 Segment Committee. The study is reviewing potential route options and environmental constraints for developing I-69 from south of the city of Woodsboro to north of the city of Refugio.

Three conceptual route options from Woodsboro to Refugio identified include:

  • A route east of the existing US 77
  • A  route west of the existing US 77
  • A route along the existing US 77 route
