TxDOT is conducting a virtual open house with an in-person option. In-person attendees will be able to view the same materials shared in the virtual open house, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and/or consultants and leave written comments.


The proposed project includes the following:

  • Upgrading the existing roadway to freeway standards with one-way frontage roads.
  • Dividing the roadway with a 24’ median and concrete barriers.
  • Constructing a grade separation (overpass) at Big Divide Road.
  • Constructing a grade separation (overpass) at Great Hills Drive.
  • The purpose of the project is to improve safety by constructing grade separations (overpasses) at high-traffic intersections and providing safer access by constructing one-way frontage roads, and improve mobility by adding service roads.

The project spans approximately 2.3 miles and approximately 40 acres will be required for right of way; some displacements are anticipated but have not yet been identified.

Accessibility The virtual open house and an 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 Lisa Tipton at 325-643-0413 no later than 4 p.m. CT on Jun. 8, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
