TxDOT proposes a new-location access-controlled roadway that would meet interstate design standards and be designated as SL 390/US 59 Relief Route, and ultimately, I-369; the project would also alleviate congestion and reduce travel delays.

This notice advises the public that a draft environmental assessment (EA) is available for public review and TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project. The purpose of the hearing is to present the proposed project and receive public comment.


The proposed project would extend for approximately 4.9 miles from 0.7 mile north of US 80 to I-20 and would include improvements to approximately three miles of I-20 from 0.55 mile east of US 59 to Farm-to-market (FM) 31/Elysian Fields Road. The proposed improvements would include the construction of a new-location, controlled-access freeway with two 12-foot mainlanes in each direction, inside and outside shoulders, grassy medians, one-way frontage roads with two 12-foot travel lanes on either side of the proposed roadway and along I-20, and on- and off-ramps throughout the length of SL 390. Bridges would be constructed over Eight Mile Creek, Parker Creek, and associated tributaries. Improvements to cross-streets include the construction of an underpass at US 80, Buck Sherrod Road, and I-20, as well as a double roundabout at FM 31/Elysian Fields Road.

The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right-of-way and potential displacements of 24 residential structures, four commercial buildings, and two utility locations. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners can be found by going to the landowner bill of rights.

At least part of the proposed project would occur within wetlands and a floodplain.

Accessibility The virtual public hearing and in-person option will be conducted in English, with some materials provided in Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact the TxDOT Atlanta District at 903-799-1309 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Friday, May 10, 2024. Please be aware that advanced notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
