The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Corpus Christi District is proposing to improve Farm-to-Market (FM) 893 (Moore Avenue) from County Road (CR) 3685 (Stark Road) to 0.20 miles west of CR 79 in San Partricio County. The proposed project is approximately 1.4 miles long and is located on the west side of the City of Portland. The proposed project will enhance safety and mobility by providing additional travel lanes and shared use path/sidewalk.
The proposed project would upgrade the roadway from two 12-ft travel lanes with 3-ft shoulders to a five lane section with curb and gutter including two 12-ft travel lanes in each direction, a 14-ft continuous center turn lane, and pedestrian facilities on either side of the roadway. Pedestrian facilities would include a 10-ft shared use path on the north side of the roadway and sections of 5-ft sidewalk connected to sections of 10-ft shared use path on the south side of the roadway. Additional right-of-way (ROW) would be required for the proposed project.
TxDOT is committed to working closely with the community on this project. The following meetings have been held to gather public input to be considered as TxDOT moves forward in developing the proposed project.
