Join the US 82 Safety Improvement Feasibility Study team at one of two open houses to review, discuss and provide input on proposed transportation solutions to improve safety and mobility along US 82. These open houses will have identical information and are being offered in two locations to allow convenient public participation opportunities. The open houses will be a come-and-go format, and project team members will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.
The US 82 study corridor, from the Cooke County Line to FM 1417 in Grayson County, experienced a total of 445 crashes over a five-year period from 2014 to 2018. Approximately 22 percent of those crashes were severe resulting in either a fatality or injury. This percentage of severe crashes is higher than the rural statewide average for similar type roadways. As a result, TxDOT is conducting this feasibility study to develop phased transportation solutions at a planning level of detail to improve US 82 study corridor safety and mobility. The study team has developed conceptual layouts of the proposed phased solutions that will be available at the open houses for review and input. These solutions are intended to:
- Enhance corridor safety by making improvements to decrease the likelihood of crashes
- Improve localized intersection and interchange safety, mobility and operations
- Provide consistency with the Texas Freight Mobility Plan 2018 as this section of US 82 is identified as part of the Texas Highway Freight Network
For more information, please contact the TxDOT Sherman Area Office. Comments will be accepted at the open houses, online through the website, or by mail. Please submit comments by Dec. 20, 2019
