Open House: 5:30 p.m.
Formal Hearing: 6 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project on Business US 190 from Avenue D to Constitution Avenue in Coryell County, Texas. Comments must be received on or before Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019, to be part of the official hearing record.

Description:

The proposed improvements to US Business 190 include maintaining the existing three (3) lanes, adding variable width raised medians with left-turn controlled access, a 6-foot-wide sidewalk on the south side of the roadway, a designated 5-foot bicycle lane within the roadway, providing a 14-foot-wide shared vehicle and bicycle lane on the north side and street lighting. The project begins at the existing Avenue D intersection and extends approximately 1.25 miles east to the existing Constitution Drive intersection. The existing US Business 190 roadway consists of 3 lanes both directions with a continuous left-turn access lane from Avenue D to Constitution Drive. The proposed project would maintain three (3) through lanes in both directions and a controlled left-turn access at public street intersections. The main lanes would consist of three (3) 12-foot lanes in each direction and include left-turn and right-turn lanes at several locations. The east- and west-bound lanes will be separated by a varying width raised median. The 6-foot-wide sidewalk located on the south side of the roadway will accommodate pedestrians and include ADA compliant ramps and pedestrian crosswalks at main intersections. A 5-foot bicycle lane will be added in the roadway on the south side and a 14-footshared access lane will accommodate both vehicular and bicycle traffic. Additional right of way is not required based on the current design.
