I-35 Virtual Public Hearing Room

Purpose:

TxDOT Wichita Falls District is proposing to widen and improve US 82 from the Wichita/Archer County Line to FM 369 in Wichita County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting for the proposed project. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020.

Description:

The proposed project would widen approximately 3.98 miles of US 82 to construct a five-lane divided roadway consisting of two 12-foot-wide travel lanes, a 16-foot-wide center left-turn lane, and 10-foot-wide shoulders in each direction.

The existing right of way is typically 100-feet-wide and the proposed right of way would typically be 150-feet-wide. A short section near the intersections of Old State Road and State Highway (SH) 258 and US 82 would be shifted south of the existing alignment to accommodate geometric improvements and safety enhancements. The eastbound US 82 exit ramp to FM 369 would be relocated further to the east to provide geometric improvements and safety enhancements. The proposed project is located in the southwest portion of Wichita County and the western side of Wichita Falls.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace one non-residential structure. 

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, these services can be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need translation or are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to participate in the virtual public meeting, please contact (512) 567-9270 no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is needed as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange. 

Memorandum of Understanding:

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 9, 2019, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
