Virtual Public Meeting - US 190/SH 6 Alignment Study: South Robertson County
The virtual meeting will be available on date and time mentioned below.
Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at 3 p.m. Project staff will give a pre-recorded presentation that will include both audio and visual components. Comments must be received on or before Thursday, July 15, 2021, to be included in the official meeting documentation.
TxDOT is holding a virtual public meeting to receive input on conceptual improvements along US 190 / SH 6 in south Robertson County. An alignment study has been undertaken to address safety and improve mobility along SH 6. The study extends from south of Hearne to Texas-OSR in Robertson County, approximately 11.5 miles.
The existing SH 6 south of Hearne to Texas-OSR generally consists of a four-lane undivided highway with two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction and 6-foot outside shoulders. Some segments contain a 14-foot wide center turn lane or a 4-foot wide flush median. In addition, TxDOT recently constructed acceleration and deceleration lanes along this corridor at selected locations to improve safety. The existing right of way varies from 150 to 330 feet.
The proposed conceptual improvements would upgrade SH 6 to a four-lane divided highway with two lanes in each direction separated by a grassy median. Additional right of way would be required along the proposed corridor. The project improvements would generally follow the existing alignment. For the segment near Campbell’s Creek at the Union Pacific Railroad, a new crossing may be developed.
The virtual public meeting 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 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, please contact Bryan District Public Information Officer at (979) 778-9764 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Friday, June 25, 2021. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
