When:

Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020 at 6 p.m.

Purpose:

TxDOT is proposing to improve US Highway (US) 60 from County Road (CR) 13 to County Road (CR) 17 in Parmer County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting regarding the proposed project.

Description:

Project staff will give a pre-recorded presentation regarding the project and an opportunity for questions will be provided following the presentation. The presentation will remain available for viewing at the web address indicated above until Dec. 4, 2020. The pre-recorded presentation will include both audio and visual components. If you do not have internet access, you may call the director of transportation planning and development (TP&D), at (806) 748-4490 to ask questions and access project materials during the project development process. Formal comments may be provided by mail or email by Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, as explained below.

The proposed project will construct a new bridge interchange southwest of Friona between CR 14 and CR 15 on US 60. The project would also include entrance and exit ramps to and from US 60. The new bridge will be constructed over US 60 and the railroad. The proposed project would require approximately 21 acres of additional right of way.

Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition can be obtained from the TxDOT Lubbock District, at (806) 748-4342.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the virtual meeting, please contact the director of TP&D, at (806) 748-4490.

Responses to comments received will be available online at TxDOT.gov on this project meeting web page within the two months following the meeting, depending on number of comments received.
