The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in partnership with Lubbock County are proposing to widen Woodrow Road from FM 1730 (Slide Road) to State Loop 493 in Lubbock County, Texas. This notice advises the public that Lubbock County will be conducting an online public meeting on the proposed project.
The virtual public meeting will be posted on two websites: the Lubbock County website and the TxDOT website. To log onto the virtual public meeting on the Lubbock County website, go to www.co.lubbock.tx.us and search the keywords “Woodrow Road” at the date and time indicated above. To log onto the virtual public meeting on the TxDOT website, go to TxDOT.gov and search the keywords “Woodrow Road” at the date and time listed above. The materials and presentation will be the same on both websites. Project staff will give a presentation regarding the project. The presentation will include both audio and visual components. If you do not have internet access, you may call (806) 686-1080 to ask questions about the project and access project materials at any time during the project development process. All comments submitted on or before Monday, Sept. 14, 2020 will be included as part of the official record for this meeting and project and considered by TxDOT and Lubbock County.
The proposed improvements would take place along the existing Woodrow Road, with new right of way to be added at various locations on both sides of the existing roadway. Improvements would consist of a five-lane roadway consisting of two 11-foot-wide inside lanes, two 13.5-foot-wide outside lanes, and a 14-foot-wide center left-turn lane. Right turn lanes would be constructed at intersections with major cross streets. Drainage would be accomplished via curb and gutters. The proposed typical right of way would be 110-feet-wide.
Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction will be available online or by calling John Allen at Hugo Reed & Associates, Inc. at (806) 763-5642.
Any environmental documentation or studies, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project will also be available online at the above web addresses.
All comments must be received on or before Monday, Sept. 14, 2020. Members of the public may call (806) 319-6148 and verbally provide comments.
