TxDOT is proposing to construct safety rest areas on the northern and southern borders of I-20 from 0.7 mile east of CR 226 to 1.9 miles east of CR 226 in Nolan County, Texas.


Project staff will show a pre-recorded presentation regarding the project and an opportunity for questions will be provided following the presentation. The presentation will remain available for viewing at the web address indicated above until Friday, Nov. 19, 2021. The pre-recorded presentation will include both audio and video components. If you do not have internet access, you may call Brandon Vinson, P.E., Transportation Engineer, at (325) 676-6800 to ask questions and access project materials during the project development process. Written comments may be submitted online, by mail, or email by Friday, Nov. 19, 2021, as explained below.

This project will be approximately 1.2 miles long reaching from 0.7 mile east of CR 226 to 1.9 miles east of CR 226 and will require roughly 51 acres to construct. The proposed improvements will include two new rest areas along each direction of I-20, access to and from the rest areas, and re-aligned frontage roads outside of the rest areas. Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction can be obtained from the TxDOT Abilene District Office by calling (325) 676-6800.

Any environmental documentation or studies, maps and drawings showing the project location and design, tentative construction schedules, and other information regarding the proposed project are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at TxDOT Abilene District Office.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the virtual meeting, please contact Brandon Vinson, P.E. at (325) 676-6800 or by email.
