Open House: 4:30 p.m.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), as the lead agency, is proposing to improve the intersection of SH 6 at FM 2 in Grimes County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting a Public Hearing and Open House for the proposed project. Both will be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, in the Bluebonnet Hall at the Navasota Center located at 101 Stadium Drive, Navasota, TX, 77868. Displays showing the project will be available for viewing starting at 4:30 PM. A formal hearing will start at 6:00 PM. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comments for the proposed project.
The existing typical section of SH 6 at FM 2 consists of two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction with dedicated 12-foot left turn lanes bounded by 12-foot outside and 4-foot inside shoulders. The travel lanes on SH 6 are separated by a depressed grass median within a right of way (ROW) that varies from 210-feet to 300-feet in width.
The proposed project would convert the at-grade intersection to a grade-separated intersection with FM 2 going over SH 6. This would create a typical main-lane section on SH 6 with two 12-foot travel lanes bounded by 10-foot inside and outside shoulders; ramps will provide access to FM 2. The proposed ROW width would vary from 210 to 450 feet. The ramps would have a 14-foot lane with 4-foot inside and 6-foot outside shoulders. Right turn lanes would be provided at the intersections with FM 2. The two bridges at Beason Creek would also be replaced on their current alignment at a higher elevation.
