Public Workshop - Fredericksburg Relief Route Study


Hill Country University Center

Thursday, May 31, 2018
4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.


The City of Fredericksburg and Gillespie County, acting through the Gillespie County Relief Route Task Force and with support from TxDOT, are exploring a potential US 290 Fredericksburg relief route. Attendees will have the opportunity to interactively learn more about the relief route study, provide input on the potential US 290 relief route project, and suggest possible route options. The input received at the workshop will help to guide the planning for this important transportation improvement project. Come and go at your convenience.


The potential route would relieve traffic and improve mobility in downtown Fredericksburg by giving people the option to travel around, rather than directly through the city. As traffic volumes and congestion continue to increase the need for a relief route has become an important safety and quality-of-life issue for the community.

All interested citizens are invited to attend this public workshop and are welcome to provide written and/or verbal comments at the workshop. Official written comments will also be received and accepted by the project team at:

Comments must be received by Friday, June 15, 2018 to be included in the official record of this public workshop.
