5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.


The purpose of the open house is to gather public input on the proposed improvements to FM 893 (Moore Ave) from CR 3685 (Stark Road) to 0.2 miles west of CR 79 (Gum Hollow) in San Patricio 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 Oct. 19, 2018, to be a part of the official open house record.


The proposed project is approximately 1.4 miles long and is located on the west side of the City of Portland. TxDOT is proposing to upgrade the roadway from two 12-ft travel lanes with shoulders to a five lane section with curb and gutter including two 12-ft travel lanes in each direction, a continuous center turn lane, and pedestrian facilities on either side of the roadway.

Special Accommodations:

TxDOT makes every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of the public. The open house will be in English. If you have a special communication accommodation or need for an interpreter, a request can be made. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can also be made to accommodate most needs. Please call (361) 808-2509 at least two working days prior to the meeting. Please be aware that advance notice is requested as some accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

Memorandum of Understanding:

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
