TxDOT is proposing improvements to US 82 from West Division Street in Blossom to SH 37 in Clarskville, and from Business US 82-J in Clarksville to the Red River/Bowie County line. The purpose of the proposed projects is to improve safety, mobility and regional connectivity, manage congestion and address roadway deficiencies.
The US 82 (West of Clarksville) Project extends from West Division Street in Blossom to SH 37 in Clarskville for a total project length of approximately 22 miles while the US 82 (East of Clarksville) Project extends from Business US 82-J in Clarksville to the Red River/Bowie County line for a total project length of approximately 17 miles. Improvements consist of the widening of US 82 to a four lane divided section in rural areas and a five lane section (including a continuous left-turn lane) in urban and suburban areas. Ramps, bridges, interchanges and the Northeast Texas Trail would be reconstructed as necessary.
Effective public involvement provides opportunities for the public to provide input into TxDOT's decision-making processes. Initially, public meetings will be held in Jan. and Feb. 2020 to provide the public with preliminary information about the projects and to ask for feedback, including the identification of environmental constraints and/or issues that need to be addressed during the environmental analysis.
