When:

5 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the hearing is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to frontage roads along SH 6 and SL 340 from US 84 to I-35. The approximate project length is 2.7 miles. Comments must be received on or before Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018, to be a part of the official  hearing record.

Description:

The proposed new improvements include construction of continuous frontage roads, four new overpasses, and the realignment of four frontage road U-turns at existing railroad lines. Additional improvements would include construction of two new U-turn bridges at Bagby Avenue and  one new U-turn bridge from the southbound frontage road of US 84 to the northbound frontage road of US 84 and ramping improvements within the project limits. A minimal amount of additional right of way is needed for this project. The project will require approximately 2.1 acres of new ROW for the construction of U-turns and continuous frontage roads at the railroad crossings. Approximately .07 acres will be required for permanent drainage easement east of Industrial Drive. There would be no residential or commercial relocations.
