Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.


The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed widening and design improvements of the US 69 Corridor, from FM 1003 (north of Kountze in Hardin County) to FM 1943 (near Warren in Tyler County). The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before March 6, 2019, to be a part of the official public meeting record.


The proposed 13-mile project includes widening US 69 from an existing two-lane roadway with shoulders (no median) to a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders, an evacuation lane, and a median. The public is invited to also review design concepts that include bridge, aesthetic design and signage options for input. Additional right of way (ROW) may be needed, but the exact amount is not known at this time, which could potentially displace residential and/or commercial properties.

The public meeting will be conducted in English.
