The scope of this safety study is a six-mile corridor of US 83/US 84 from FM 707/Iberis Road S. to the US 83/US 84 intersection.
Considerable growth in the southern portion of the City of Abilene and into Taylor County has affected the safety and efficiency of US 83/US 84, in particular, the six-plus miles from Iberis Road S. to the US 83/US 84 split. TxDOT is reviewing this corridor due to:
The proposed US 83/US 84 project will enhance corridor safety and efficiency for the traveling public. Local traffic will increase with expected growth and through traffic is also likely to increase as the state’s population grows. Roadway enhancements will be a proactive effort to prepare the corridor for future annual average daily traffic increases while working to maintain the safety of the traveling public.
TxDOT conducted a public meeting on Jan. 31, 2017, to gather input on proposed improvements on US 83 from the US 83/84 split to north of FM 707 in Taylor County.
Project information presented at the meeting is based partly on comments and public input received from previous meetings TxDOT conducted for this area.
