TxDOT's Beaumont District will host a virtual public meeting with in-person option to gather input on the proposed US 90 bridge overpass at the Union Pacific Railroad project located in Dayton, Liberty County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting on the proposed project with an in-person option. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the virtual public meeting, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions and leave written comments. All comments must be received on or before Friday, April 15, 2022, to be part of the public meeting record.
The purpose of the proposed project is to enhance safety and improve mobility by eliminating the at-grade crossing to reduce travel delays due to the interaction of trains and vehicles at the US 90/UPRR intersection. The approximately one-mile project includes:
- Removing the at-grade crossing
- Building an overpass bridge over the existing UPRR
- Adding U-turns to maintain access
- Adding safety lighting
No right of way or displacements are anticipated. The project will take place within the existing right of way ranging from 128 to 131-feet wide on US 90.
The virtual public meeting and in-person option will be conducted in English. 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 an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting or in-person option, please contact Sarah Dupre, at 409-898-5745 at least three days before the event. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
