The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in conjunction with Glasscock County, is proposing to construct an overpass on SH 158 over SH 137 in Glasscock County, Texas. The total distance of the project is approximately 2.5 miles. Comments and requests for a public hearing must be submitted in writing on or before August 27, 2018.
The proposed project, 13 miles west of Garden City, will include roadway modifications on approximately 1.5 miles of SH 158 and 1 mile on SH 137. The project includes the addition of exit and entrance ramps to facilitate access between SH 158 and SH 137. This proposed project is aimed at relieving congestion and reducing traffic incidents at the intersection. SH 158 is a 4-lane highway with 12 foot lanes and SH 137 is a 2-lane highway with 12 foot lanes. The existing intersection is signalized and includes right turn lanes, and the existing right-of-way (ROW) width is approximately 120 feet. The proposed overpass is a 4-lane highway with 12-foot lanes. SH 137 will have one through-lane 12 feet in width and turning lanes 12 feet in width. The proposed ROW width is 300 feet at its widest, and approximately 15 acres of new ROW will be required to complete the project. Although additional ROW is required, no residential or nonresidential structures would be displaced.
Any environmental documentation or studies, maps showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at San Angelo TxDOT Headquarters, 4502 Knickerbocker Road, San Angelo, Texas, 76904, (325) 947- 9261.
