The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Corpus Christi District, in coordination with Refugio County, is moving forward with the project development process for the US Highway (US) 77 improvements in the Woodsboro and Refugio area. Please refer to the Project Development Process detailed below. The US 77 proposed improvement project will follow the recommendations of the 2018 US 77 Woodsboro/Refugio Route Study, which included:
Preliminary design and environmental studies are the next step in the process. The purpose of these activities is to develop and evaluate roadway alignment options within this corridor, take into consideration public input, and determine the potential impacts the proposed project will have on the environment and community. The goal of the project is to improve safety for local and through traffic; improve mobility, access, and connectivity; and support economic opportunity. Additionally, the development of the corridor meets the future goal of designating this section of US 77 as part of the Interstate 69 (I-69) highway system.
