TxDOT is proposing to reconstruct and improve the US 83/84 Y-Intersection south of Abilene and improve and widen US 83 from near the US 83/84 Y-Intersection to near CR 160 in Taylor County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a virtual public meeting on the proposed project with an in-person option.
The virtual meeting will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation and will include both audio and visual components. The presentation and materials will be added to this page at the date and time listed above. Following the virtual public meeting, the presentation will remain available for viewing at the web address indicated above until at least Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.
Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the virtual public meeting which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants from a socially distanced approach, and leave written comments. The in-person option will be held on the date and time, and at the location, listed above.
If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or virtual meeting or in-person option, please contact Michael Haithcock, P.E., Director of Transportation Planning and Development at (325) 676-6800, or by email.
