5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Presentation at 6 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed safety improvements to Business US 190 from Avenue D to Constitution Avenue in Coryell County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format, with a brief presentation at 6 p.m. Interested members of the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions.

Description:

The proposed improvements to Business US 190 include adding variable width raised medians with left-turn controlled access, a 10-foot wide multi-use path on the south side of the roadway and both pedestrian 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 Business US 190 roadway consists of three lanes in both directions with a continuous left-turn access lane from Avenue D to Constitution Drive.  The proposed project would provide two through lanes in both directions and a controlled left-turn access at public street intersections. The main lanes would consist of two 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 comprised of xeriscape landscaping and brick pavers. The 10-foot wide multi-use path located on the south side of the roadway will accommodate both pedestrian and bicycle traffic and include ADA compliant ramps and pedestrian crosswalks at main intersections.  Additional right of way is not required based upon the current design.  

Special accommodations: TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The public meeting will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (254) 867-2705 at least two working days prior to the meeting.
