ODESSA – A public meeting has been scheduled to present a proposed revision to the FY 2019-2022 Rural Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the Odessa District and to receive input from the public on the revision. The meeting is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, 2019, at the Odessa District Office, 3901 E. Highway 80 in Odessa.

The proposed TIP Revision includes the addition of a project on SH 302 near Kermit, Winkler County, Texas. The proposed project would widen SH 302 to add an additional travel lane in each direction, from 1.0 mile west of SH 115 to 1.0 mile east of SH 115. The proposed project would also add eastbound and westbound frontage roads, each consisting of one travel lane. Improvements would also include the construction of two overpasses, one at SH 115 and one at the Texas & New Mexico Railroad. No new right of way is proposed for this project, therefore there would be no displacements.

The meeting will be held in an open house format, and TxDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

The TIP is a mechanism used by TxDOT and FHWA to fund projects for the next four years and includes all federally funded projects. This meeting is being held pursuant to Title 43, Texas Administrative Code, Section 16.102, which calls for an opportunity for public comment concerning the program.

Written comments may be submitted to:
