US 82 (West of Clarksville) and US 82 (East of Clarksville) Projects

Project Overview

The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing improvements to US 82 from the BU 82/SH 37 junction to FM 412 in the City of Clarksville, Red River County, Texas.  Improvements consist of the widening of US 82 from a two-lane undivided rural highway to a four-lane divided rural highway.  Other proposed improvements include reconstruction of interchanges, ramps and bridges, in addition to sidewalk, trail and drainage improvements.   

The purpose of the proposed project is to improve safety, mobility and regional connectivity, manage congestion and address roadway deficiencies.

Schedule and funding for construction have not been identified for this project. 

Public Involvement

Effective public involvement provides opportunities for the public to provide input into TxDOT's decision-making processes.  A virtual public meeting will be held in August 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. 

Maps of the project areas and other displays will be available for review and comment, and TxDOT staff will be available to answer questions via phone or email.  The meeting will be an online virtual public meeting.
